Old badgers take lambs too. Don't feed them, it tempts them to cross roads and puts them in danger.
Their eye-sight is very bad, so it may not even have seen Buttercupdays.
When we were on the farm OH was cultivating the field and on each pass a vixen came out of the wood with her cubs to pick up worms as the tractor unearthed them. He was able to come back to the house and collect the children to see them too.
When I walked the dogs at dusk we often came face to face with badgers. I don't know who was more shocked; the badgers or the dogs!
