Culling Badgers is the name of my Honeydrippers bluegrass cover band.

Badger curling?

CSB: I visited a friend in Northampton, England, and she explained that I'd be seeing lots of rabbits.  When I arrived, I found out how right she was - there were rabbits everywhere.  Here I am, a reasonably adult man, sent into spasms of giggles pointing out, "There's one!  There's another!" as we rode back from the train station.  By the end of the day the novelty had worn off, and we decided to go to the Union to get some drinks.

This time, she was more serious.  "When walking in the dark, we need to be very careful."  I asked if we might trip over the rabbits...

"No, that's when the badgers come out to hunt them."

Are they also culling the Lesser Badger (aka a Wolverine)?
