Badgers Digging Up Ancient Human Remains

One of England’s oldest graveyards is under siege by badgers. Rev Simon Shouler now regularly patrols the grounds of St. Remigius Church looking for bones that the badgers have dug up. The badger is a protected species in England so they can not be killed, and attempts to have them relocated have been blocked by English Nature. From the article: “At least four graves have been disturbed so far; in one instance a child found a leg bone and took it home to his parents. … Rev. Simon Shouler has been forced to carry out regular patrols to pick up stray bones, store them and re-inter them all in a new grave.”
