    Talking Otters are as dangerous as lions

    Read this in yesterday's Guardian. It's from an article about a guy who bought a zoo (despite not having any experience).

    Otters are as dangerous as lions

    Technically, if an otter escapes, it's a Code Red. As Class 1 dangerous animals - because they could bite your finger off - the same procedure has to be followed as with a lion: the whole 30-acre park has to be shut down, customers herded into safe areas, police notified, firearms deployed, and the animal shot dead unless it is absolutely certain it can be contained. In fact, for our otters, containment would be pretty straightforward. A piece of fish and a net on a pole would probably do the trick.
    To be fair, I think he's referring to Asian otters but it's still interesting...

    And just think a humble maggot can devour a live sheep from the inside, wonder if they should give them the same 'Class 1' danger rating.

    Admittedly it takes more than one maggot to do any real damage but....

    No mate, irony is a bit ironic really. It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife, or meeting the man of your dreams and meeting his beautiful wife..............isn't it ironic..........



    Nature on the other hand, isn't ironic...

    DON'T MESS WITH NATURE, LET IT TAKE ITS COURSE!

    what you mean like leaving the current otter population alone to get on with it and find it's own ballance, rather than calling for them to be killed.
