While doing my final rounds before bed I heard what I thought was a cat-fight. Knowing that one or two of our Persians are "up for a scrap" (One of them terrorised our oversized Pommeranian and caused him to have an unplanned vasectomy) I decided to investigate. Maglite in hand (D-Cell LED mmmmmmm nice toy) I headed for the source ofthe racket only to find 3 young looking badgers tearing strips off eachother.
They soon bolted when they noticed the light but in hindsight I was lucky not to be attacked as I was less than a metre from the noisy ball of fur and teeth.
I then thought what if they'd attacked one of my cats or my beloved Minature Yorkies? Is this likely/common or do they keep themselves to themselves?
