Lovable woodland cuties or vicious bastards?
Olegrich and you know it. I'm totally going to win this one.
I'd say lovable but....BRITAIN'S LARGEST PREDATOR. Or something.
ever is from watching The Animals of Farthing Wood. and Badger there was like a confused old grandad, so I assume they're all like that.
Just like my grandad.
I can't remember if it were better or worse than Geordie Racer.
all I remember is the motorbike bit.
it was badger. IN YOUR FACE
there is no toad there.
between a Squirrel and Adder.
They often rode together.
for not being able to cross the fecking motorway.
MAN IS EVIL! EVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVILLL!
due to their championing by twee indie kids.
I belive they are VICIOUS BASTARDS
I will not rest until every badger on this planet is exterminated.
I hate those bloody Beatrix Potter-type personifications of badgers. Oh, you're so regal and kind with your tiny soft paws. NO, actually you're a lumbering tank of hell with claws like knives and a mind trained to KILL.
AS IT'S THE most interesting thing I've read on here in some time...
Sneaky little bastards as well.
doesn't look rabid at all. he's just going for a gentle stroll.
to tear someones face off.
i bet you think those pandas are all cute and cuddly too
though i do quite like the old livid meerkat
They would probably bite off one of your extremities. Therefore I think of them as the latter.
I've never seen an alive one in real life though.
around where my halls were in my first year. Some of them were as big as shetland ponies.
I have seen a real one! How did I forget this?! It was by the chalet bins at Slint ATP, and it looked terrified.
maybe you just used to be smaller.
the bastards were HUGE
badgers are not the size of ponies. we've been through this...
they were MASSIVE!
*Raises hand to show height of shetland pony*
when we're not around they enjoy the finer things in life, like tea and crumpets and crosswords. One might say they epitomise ye olde English attitude with their understated yet robust manner and civilised culture.
Squirrels could learn a lot from our Badger friends (thieving Yankie bastards)
My mum and dad love the warrior picture.

I kill me.
a badger dressed as a scotsman, playing a bagpipe.
country of the animal order mustaphalia, or something like that.
The other indigenous ones being weasels, stoats and mink and pine martins and beeck martins and polecats (and otters) now all of these others are far more 'carnivores than is the badger which is truely omniverous (like bears) It might kill frogs/toads and find rodent dens, but it cant, chase and kill things like rabbits.
They do not atack humans any mnore than foxes do.....if you have a go at one or threaten its young then it will bite at you, but if it had the opportunity then it would bog off as soon as it heard your lumbering footsteps or smelt your pong. Badgers might have a reputation for ferocity because they have mangles some dogs muzzles.....dogs trying to dig into their sets, the human equivalent of you battering a burglar trying to knock down your door.
The idea of badgers carrying tuberculosis is not proven and never was, they, like other mammels probably have/can carry and transmit it, yet they are certainly not the exclusive methods of its spread amongst cattle, this sort of rumour/suspicion has been going on since the early 60's (or even earlier). If Badgers did spread any tuberculosis, then why didnt MAFF (now defunct) innoculate them?
are also in the same order. Wolverines are ferocious. Skunks are smelly. All of this order have scent glands like the skunk, but much milder.
they kill a lot of things.
Badgers are no responsible for the killing of many of 'humans animals'
why anyone would have anything against them is puzzling.
I guess Bamos must have had a 'badger incident' earlier in his life
We love Badgers. Mrs knees even made a Badger cake. In my pics
