This character we have in these parts. It is an adult male badger that was until last night a very tough critter that could challenge even the toughest "Fort Knox" type of coops. His weakness are low abundance, not a very good climber nor is he very fast. Those front claws are very capable and he is so well muscled even a large LGD would have difficulties with him. We simply count on harassing him so he can not invest in getting through the flimsy pens I have and make so birds roost up. Dogs can drive him off even though they can not kill him and the commotion brings me into picture where I am not so limited.
