    ... it's somewhat lacking on practical details ... should you use a red squirrel or or will a grey suffice?

    Depends on the size of the wound, of course. If REALLY bad, you may need a badger.

    Presumably south of your border in the USA, where everything is bigger and therefore better, they're using grizzy claws as sutures?

    Never Leave the House Without a 100kg Bergen Rucksack
    151,600 people die each day
    If I have to carry 100kg up a mountain to survive that will be 151,601 on that day!!

    I could easily believe these were genuine extracts from BG books.
