Quote of the Week

"Every British animal has its cheerleaders. The country has so many badger-support groups that it was deemed necessary to create an umbrella organization, the National Federation of Badger Groups, now known as the Badger Trust, to coordinate all of the disparate badger-related activity. The National Bat Hotline takes ten thousand calls a year, providing "free information and advice to anyone who needs help with a bat," its Web site says. Every year, during the toad mating season, hundreds of volunteers put on orange fluorescent vests and help amorous toad cross the street in Wales, using the two most popular toad-helping methods: escorting them or transporting them in buckets."
