Who's the boss? A fox or a badger
Updated: Jan 27
Every so often the consumer camtraps I use turn up something fascinating. In this case it was the interaction between a badger and a fox. This video was captured near where I work, where I've been photographing and viewing the local badgers, foxes and deer for quite a while. Normally, I sprinkle some peanuts around this area in the evening to attract the badgers for viewing from the portable hide seen in the background. In this instance I'd suspended a simple timer feeder, like you might use for a cat or dog, so that food is dropped late in the night for other creatures such as the fox.
It worked as the local male fox turned up and enjoyed some peanuts in peace before a badger turned up.
Watch the video to see what happened.
