August 2011. The sections
of fence that were left open to allow the badgers free roam
has now been closed.
To allow restricted access, sections of the fence contain a
type of "cat flap"
The "flap" currently opens in both directions, but
once the badgers have become accustomed to this obstacle the
flap will be operational in one direction only. ie, no access
back into the Mount
The Badgers obviously do not
take kindly to the idea of being relocated. From the photographs
below (taken outside the Mount) they are intent of burrowing
under the wire in order to get back to their previous home.
