Minks back with a vengeance – US to blame
Down in Cardiff, which we are told is in Wales, there is a group of boffins telling us all kinds of interesting things. So far this week we have had GPS to within half a centimetre, despite the fact it is non-year 2000 compliant but today's report took the biscuit. Boffin MacDonald, who claims to be from Oxford University, told the assemblees there that American mink have overrun three continents, wiping out local versions of mink and ferrets everywhere. Worse than that, but not according to the same boffin, three hedgehogs were planted on Benbecula by someone who wanted to get rid of rats and they have now destroyed practically all birdlife on three of the Western Isles. Inbred hedgehogs worry us here at The Register. Shouldn't they import cars onto the islands?
