Burrowing badgers halt roadworks
14 December 2008 - BBC News
The burrowing of a family of badgers delayed construction work on a road
between Hereford and Hay-on-Wye.
Engineers were about to start work at Cusop when they noticed four large
burrows on the road embankment.
The badgers had dug under the tarmac to such a degree that the road was
unstable, engineering firm Amey said.
They were eventually moved to safety by staff from English Nature and the
engineers were finally able to complete the work.
