Home Forums Hedgehog tales Badger mauling Reply To: Badger mauling


I too thought my garden was badger proof but last night one dug a filthy great hole under my back fence! I caught him on camera by the hedgehog house at 2.43am – none in residence and although he sniffed the feeding station, he gave up when he couldn’t negotiate the chicane entrance.

I have retiree flats at the back of me and that’s where the badger came from. They openly feed the hogs. Someone there recently heard a loud scream and witnessed a badger mauling a hedghog and eating it. Quite distressing.

I’m wondering if this means I have no chance now of hedgehogs in my garden – I’ll persist with all the activities listed to encourage them but have little hope :(.
