Odd I know, but Iraqis in Basra are claiming that giant Badgers have been released by British troops to attack their city:

Giant Badgers attack Basra - Daily Telegraph

Here are a few quotes from the locals who saw these monstrous beasts:

“I believe this animal appeared following a raid to the region by the British forces,”

“I was sleeping at night when this strange animal hit me on my head. I have not seen such an animal before. My husband hurried to shoot it but it was as swift as a deer,”

“It is the size of a dog but his head is like a monkey. It runs so quickly.”

Its so wacky it must be true!

Badgers? We don't need no stinkin' badgers!

Too bad that there aren't any pictures of these things. It certainly would make identification easier. Nevertheless, I am of a mind to think that these creatures are nothing more than RATS!

I've seen some pretty large rats in my time and I know that they can get pretty large. Furthermore, I have heard that rats often thrive in war zones. It might be rather disgusting to ponder but a war zone can provide plenty of "food" to these rodents.
