Won't Somebody Think Of The Dormouse?

Oh, somebody did think of the dormouse - and spent $US290,000 on building the little creatures a bridge over a busy road.

The dormouse bridge crosses a newly built bypass in South Wales, and while the usual sorts are rabid with rage about such a huge chunk of taxpayers money being spent on such a thing, isn't it just...nice? Mankind is still capable of compassion. And no, they couldn't have just made a tunnel - the dormouse lives in trees and isn't really much of a mouse at all. [Daily Mail]
