10. The Badger or Brock

The badger or brock is an animal that has survived in some numbers despite much persecution. It has never received any protection for sporting purposes - it is a truly wild beast. It lives in a large burrow known as a "sett" and is strictly nocturnal in its habits, hence its presence in a neighbourhood often goes unsuspected. Sometimes, particularly in the autumn, it may make itself known by long, loud yells, which are probably a love song. The cubs, generally two or three in number, are born in February or March.
