We caught this footage recently of a badger apparently dragging what looks like another animal. I am not quite sure what it is. Is it a cat? a rabbit? or a baby badger?
We looked in this location the following day for any signs of something being left behind (e.g. fur, a dead body), but there was nothing. A quick Internet search reveals that badgers are known to take domestic pets (including cats), but it is considered rare. In the entire time that we have owned the property, we have never seen any rabbits here – either dead or alive (maybe the badgers have eaten them all!).
It is a shame that it is difficult to tell from the night time footage exactly what it was. I guess we will never know.
