This is a wonderful video, and contains one of best happy scritching grooming moments ever.
During 2016, the badger had the honor of being Latvia’s animal of the year. And what a year it has been for badgers, as the video below shows.
Produced by the Latvian Natural History Museum and Latvian State Forests, the video shows badgers frolicking, loving, playing, fighting and generally badgering about throughout the whole year.
With films of all sorts of nonsense all over the place these days, how simple and refreshing it is to just watch 20 minutes of badgers being badgers.
There are also special guest appearances by deer, foxes, and assorted other woodland associates of Old Brock himself.
Thank you, Latvian badgers everywhere. Enjoy!
