Q707: What can I do if badgers are digging up my garden or burrowing beneath a building?

If it is only the case that badgers are entering the garden and digging and burrowing then preventative measures aimed at keeping badgers out will normally be advised. If there is a sett in the garden then it is protected and a licence from the Scottish Government will be required before anything can be done. For more information please contact:
