Woman 'chased by badger' around Staffordshire Shell stationShe was so surprised she dropped her curry
A badger loose in a Staffordshire petrol station chased a woman so aggressively she dropped her curry. Molly Paget ran from the large mammal as it persued her around a Shell garage in Stafford.
Usually, badgers are said to run to the nearest den when they come into contact with humans. But this one seemed to see red as Molly stopped off on her way back from work.
She said: "It happened on Monday as I was on my way back from work at around 8:00pm. I stopped in at the Shell garage in Stafford and there it was."
"A police officer walked in and saw it, but then just turned around and walked back out," she added, reports NorthWalesLive. Despite appearances, the badger wasn't actually shopping, more so a case of nature quite literally calling: "He didn't take anything, he just ran into the loos." Molly said.
"I was scared though when he chased after me, I dropped my curry trying to get away by going down two different aisles, he was always close behind until he went into the bathroom. It's the first badger I've ever seen alive."

"None of the other staff members saw the badger come in, but when they did they all screamed. Then a random man asked for a brush and said he hadn't had his TB jab, but would have a good crack at ushering the badger out, which he did."
