Great Harwood vegetarian explains badger in freezer

"Someone's just given me a badger, it's in my freezer," says 22-year old Nicola Hebson. "It's quite random really."

Miss Hebson, from Great Harwood in Lancashire, is talking of her unusual hobby - taxidermy - especially since she is a vegetarian.

She views it as "another way of recycling", using only animals that are already dead - from natural causes, road-kill - or, literally, something the cat dragged in.

Creations include putting a rat in a dress and turning another one into a fully-working purse.

"I don't know if people think it's a bit creepy, most people are fine with it, and it's just normal to me," she said.
