Wolf vandalizes badger sett with badger cubs inside – Zoology by Vadim Sidorovich

In Belarus wolves go to badger setts somewhat typically. Regularly the goal of such visits is to catch a badger that slacked close to the burrow. Through the breeding season of wolves, fairly often they attempt to do away with badgers and occupy their sett. They use such burrows to depart pups inside. Usually wolf breeders enlarge the entrances of such a badger sett.

Lately we video-registered vandalizing a badger sett by breeding wolves and the way mom badger strikes the cubs afterwards. Curiously that a number of years in the past this burrow was a wolf burrow-den that was dug by wolves. Than badgers occupied the burrow and enlarged it.
