Physics Update: This Anti-Science Protester Shut Down The Most Expensive Physics Lab In The World

"The Large Hadron Collider is the largest and most complex machine in the world, but it only took one adventurous weasel to shut it down in November of last year. The unfortunate fellow jumped over a substation fence and was hit by 18,000 volts of electricity. Now, its stuffed corpse is on display at the Rotterdam Natural History Museum."

I want to know several things:

  1. Are there any anti-weasel contingencies in place now?
  2. Does the critter have a name?
  3. Who saved the weasel carcass for future display?
  4. Will anti-weasel contingencies work against beavers?
  5.  Couldn't a proper action pose have been used for display?
  6. Can Ron Moore opine about his similar experiences at the Tevatron?
