Badger - Badgers can be fierce animals and will protect themselves and their young at all costs, are capable of fighting off dog-packs and fighting off much larger animals, such as wolves and bears. However, badgers can be tamed and then kept as pets. - Wikipedia

It's not right to kill badgers just because some of them in the UK catch a type of tuberculosis from cows, which could then be passed on to other cows. More research should be done into vaccinations. These animals are so furry, and cute, and an essential part of our ecosystems.
