Badgers have moved in to the goat house
Does anyone else have experience of badgers taking up residence in outbuildings? And did you get rid of them?
For a few years now we have seen large holes being created by the badgers in our field. I thought at first it was a young badger trying to create his own sett.
Unfortunately he got bored of digging holes in the garden lawn and field and decided he was going to move in with the goats instead.
I have 6 pygmy goats who live between a 12x12 goat house and 6x12 goat house side by side. Both are open 24/7 so they are free to come and go as they please. The badger(s) (I saw two in the field shelter on the night camera), however, have decided that they will use the smaller goat house.
They have dug a latrine at one side and on the other under the bench the goats use, they have pulled hay in and made a nest.
By morning they have gone. Where do they go?
I don't want to harm them and hopefully they aren't carrying TB otherwise we're in deep doodoo.
Are they likely to move on do you think?
