    They have been on one of my rugby pitches this last few weeks they are struggling a bit hence rooting and scratching the turf up .i had them one year real bad it looked like a mini digger had been on the pitch ! Nothing much for them to eat under the turf except leather jackets and chafer grubs very tasty to badgers .

    If you look at the comments below the article someone actually suggests that.

    I have been out watching over a few ewes lambing recently and have to sit and watch three very large, very cocky badgers ploughing my fields. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be done to deter them legally.

    It's alway the comments under the article that give me a giggle.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Badgers are fairly intelligent, persistent and strong. From my experience with them, living as I do in a "hot-spot" there is precious little you can do to stop their antics. They are capable of clawing through heavy gauge wire netting. Electric fencing (mains type) can help but if they are determined to get somewhere they will usually succeed! Until government comes to their senses and takes them off the protected list you will just have to put up with them
