Badgers are back in Berkhamsted Castle attack

The badgers are back at Berkhamsted Castle – and this time the damage they have done to its grass is worse than ever before.

Site owner English Heritage taped off a previously-undamaged corridor to prevent people from tripping on the torn-up castle turf.

But now the badgers – who eat grubs underneath the grass – have torn it up inside of the corridor too.

English Heritage say there is little they can do as badgers are a protected species, and are very good at chewing or digging their way through and under obstacles.
