Hedgehog? Badger? A Kingfisher? Everyone has a favourite, I expect. What's yours?

They look like normal cats, which is very confusing. I just want to pet them but they'd just bite me.

I personally like badgers. And foxes. And hedgehogs! There are a lot of good animals. I'd never decide. But badgers used to be a bit of a comedy trope, didn't they? So I'll go with those.

I saw an otter for the first time the other day. That was quite a sight to behold. Not quite as magnificent as the humongous bird of prey I saw last year,  though.

Hands down. I'm off to the Forest of Dean next week just to have a nosey for them . Can't wait. At the very least I ought to see some wild boar (Britain's second best wild animal).

I once saw some sort of primordial hairy wild goat thing just outside of Rob Roy's cave.  It was bloody massive, and it had horns the size of my arms.  It even smelt ancient.

Also saw one of the aforementioned Scottish Wildcats on the same walking trip, and a load of Highland Cows atop a climbable waterfall. Dead striking creatures they are.  They look like something from The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.  (Not quite wild, though).

I appreciated this even if no-one else did.

Wild boar

They mate faster than you can shoot em, they can inhale a labradour and fart it out as a skeleton seconds later, keep hippies and walkers out of forests,a domain which is frankly none of their business to be fucking round in, and their a source of delicious meat.

We should snatch back all this tedious pasture from the complacent mud monkeys and rewild it and release the boars, have a boar based economy, a nation of fat, constipated huntsmen surrounded by rivers of hairy meat slabs to be plucked for our soups and casseroles at will, as it stands we are as hick farmers trying to grow turnips in an oilfield

Grey squirrels forever. Reds are moody prima donnas. Greys are the friendly, zany buddies who drop into your garden and eat your nuts from your pocket.

As you well know, greys are an invasive species from North America who have systematically destroyed the reds for several decades now.

Jeremy Corbyn will win this, of course, hands down.  They'll drive him off without even a blanket and he'll live on his wits in the back of beyond, like a hunted, hopefully not wounded, beast and emerge, winning this.

They still have them in France but they're all gone from the UK now, sorry.
