Badgers – a new bloodsport

Really good that the League Against Cruel Sports is spearheading a campaign against the Government’s plans to allow people to randomly shoot badgers. You can sign up to their petition here….

And here’s a cute picture of a badger to persuade you to do so….

    Does the hero of The Old Men at the Zoo by Angus Wilson eat a badger?

    The idea is used to depict mental and social breakdown I think

      Did you know :- Wilson started to write in the 1940s on his psychotherapist’s advice after he had some kind of nervous breakdown. His paranoidic fears were not completely groundless – his sexual inclination made him a target of gossips and he could run in the risk of being blackmailed. His first stories were published in Horizon. By the end of 1946 he had recoved sufficiently and had returned to the library, writing during the weekends, and replacing books lost in the blitz during working hours.
