What could have made these large holes in our lawn?

We were quite shocked to see lots of very large holes in our front garden lawn.  Must have happened overnight as we did not see them yesterday.  They look too big to be a bird or a cat and don't come from underneath as would see with a mole.  Has anyone seen holes of this size in grass? - Will attempt to show photos.  Sorry can't send photos - whatever I did the size was too big

    smallest resize on Windows 10 is 6.47 mb and it says this is for thumbprints = so goodness knows how anyone posts a photo on here!!

    Photos would indeed help! The culprits that variously dig large holes in my grass are badgers (having caught one on camera) but we also get occasional wild boar incursions - as soon as we plug one gap under the fence they dig another. Would either of those be a possibility in your area?

    My local Facebook Group think  'Badger' too  - photos are so easy to post on Facebook so what's wrong with this site??

    Foxes have dug two large holes in my lawn. We have no badgers near.

    Works fine here ... how are you trying to do it?

    Google advice was Click on photo - then right click and select 'resize' then I tried M for Medium (told me too big)  then S for Small (still told me too big)  I tried this several times and gave up.  On Facebook you just click on photo - click on Open and it loads!

    Foxes have made large holes in our front garden, but only in the soil, to get at the worms.

    Are you clicking on the landscape icon above the text box first?
