Damned UK squirrels

Postby Witness » Tue Nov 15, 2016 5:27 am

The Guardian wrote:Leprosy revealed in red squirrels across British Isles

Leprosy has been found in red squirrels across the British Isles and scientists believe they have been infected with the disfiguring disease for centuries.

The endangered animals carry the same bacteria that cause the human disease, research has revealed. This results in lesions on their muzzles, ears and paws, adding to the sharp decline in their numbers caused by invading grey squirrels, which appear immune to the disease.

It is possible that humans have caught leprosy from red squirrels in the past, as their fur and meat was once prized. But the last case of leprosy contracted in the UK was in 1798, indicating the risk is now extremely low.

“We should be even more concerned about the squirrels now and not frightened of them,” said Prof Anna Meredith, at the University of Edinburgh and one of the leaders of the new study. “We have found it is widespread all over the UK and Ireland, but we don’t want people to be alarmed. It has been around a long time and there have been no human cases for hundreds of years.”

Ain't been no red squirrels in these here parts for decades, the Yankee grey squirrels have driven them out.

Bloody immigrants, taking our squirrels...
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Deport the fuckers! But only the ones who are drug-running, rapist, murdering, anti-Orange grey squirrels. The others, of course, are doing jobs the red squirrels don't want to do...

Those squirrels might do some good over there. One kamikaze squirrel here tried to take out an Alderman but only succeeded in breaking his face.
