Man-eating, bear-like beasts

Sometimes I’m stuck for what to write about on the blog, but not today. The BBC published this bizarre story about badgers in the Iraqi city of Basra. Apparently “word spread among the populace that UK troops had introduced strange man-eating, bear-like beasts into the area to sow panic”. The rumours spread because the animals had appeared near the British base at Basra airport. I love the idea of this story though. The quote from “Housewife Suad Hassan” is classic:

It is the size of a dog but his head is like a monkey
