It's OK Darren, when we have droughts up here we just feed them our chickens. They can rip timber and wire mesh no trouble...the record was ten dead bantams in a raised house right beside the kitchen. They only took one head!
The DEFRA badger liaison officer from Worcester came and documented it as a definite badger attack (not very hard...the only triangular animal hair around).
