That story reminds me of the late 70s when we had a severe rabies outbreak here in Upshur county. There are more skunks than people here and these rabid stinkers were almost daily making their way into stores and houses, wreaking general havoc. I guess looking on the bright side at least they weren't badgers.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction. - Ernst F. Schumacher
