Brian May and the Victorian Society have announced a plan to open a sanatorium for badgers riddled with TB. The two are currently seeking a property in Somerset and hope that the move will bring a practical solution to the culling atrocities of late.
May announced the initiative today saying, “We hope to bring a workable solution to the TB problem. The Victorian Society contacted me to suggest the idea and I have no idea why nobody else thought of it before. It’s clearly the answer. If this one works we can fully envisage a chain of sanatoria across the southwest and further afield. My royalties from Another One Bites the Dust should cover the funding”.
The Victorian Society, which has a history of saving buildings and oddly shaped teapots, is equally as excited about the project. Spokesman Edmund Crump, who is currently working on a paper entitled “Quaint Diseases and Solutions,” explained that while consumption could potentially be fatal, the sanatorium was aiming for a recovery programme including a light diet, turns around the garden in wicker wheelchairs, and poetry readings by philanthropic writers.
A meeting is being arranged to discuss matters with Defra.
