#501 Going to see a Doggie Fashion Show
Would you take part in a Doggie Fashion show? Nearly 300 of New York's best-dressed dogs took part in the 25th Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade.

#421 Badgers Should Get a Fairer Deal
The Badger is native to Britain. We pride ourselves on our reputation for animal welfare and have enacted legislation to protect them.

Why are badgers being persecuted when other options are on the table?

There are safer alternatives, but I am wondering how many people have had or know someone who has had a bad reaction?

Any hedgehog that is out in the daytime is likely to need specialist care and medication as soon as possible.
