In Belarus wolves go to badger setts slightly usually. Regularly the intention of such visits is to catch a badger that slacked close to the burrow. Throughout the breeding season of wolves, fairly normally they attempt to eliminate badgers and occupy their sett. They use such burrows to go away pups inside. Usually wolf breeders enlarge the entrances of such a badger sett.
Lately we video-registered vandalizing a badger sett by breeding wolves and the way mom badger strikes the cubs afterwards. Curiously that a number of years in the past this burrow was a wolf burrow-den that was dug by wolves. Than badgers occupied the burrow and enlarged it.
