Badgers of Mass Destruction

“The assumptions about badgers and bTB, like those fabled and non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction that led us to invade Iraq, have become an accepted ‘truth’ on which to build government policies.” (http://www.theecologist.org/blogs_and_comments/commentators/2987993/why_are_badgers_always_at_the_head_of_the_blame_queue.html)

So, instead of asking “how are badgers infecting cattle?”, if we ask “what is infecting cattle with bovine TB?” or “how might cattle be infecting badgers?” now that would be heresy.
