There are many wild animals around here...

There are many wild animals around here such as the fox the badger the rabbits and the hares. There are two kinds of badgers, one of them is like a pig, and the other is like a dog. The dog badger is very wicked but the pig badger is not altogether as bad. The badger lives in holes down in the ground, and under stones.
There is a cure in a fox's tongue it would cure any cut, and it would also keep it from getting blood-poisoning.
The foxes and badgers kill most of the foul.
