Drunk man fears badger attack

A man called the police because he was scared he would be attacked by a badger.

The drunk 999 caller had gotten lost in the woods when Force Operator Dominic Taylor took the call.

He said: "He was on his way home from a night out and was scared that a badger was going to attack him - the joys of alcohol. He advised me he was very cold, so I suggested that he run to keep himself warm.

"I managed to direct the caller to some houses and found where he was using maps and by checking the address listed on vehicle registrations.

"The caller was very relieved when he got home. Most importantly, he got home without a single badger attack."

Wiltshire Police released details of calls as part of a week-long campaign to highlight the inappropriate use of the 999 and 101 numbers.
