Stand off with... a badger

I kid you not! I was out running this morning about 6am and noticed a fox and some other animal chasing eachother on the path ahead.

The fox ran into the hedge but the other animal ran towards me. That’s when I realised it was a rather angry badger.

I started to slow down and at about 5 or 6 metres apart we both stopped and looked at eachother. It looked pretty annoyed and after a 3 or 4 second stand off I was about to turn and run (or more likely sprint).

Thankfully it then decided to turn instead and ran off back down the track (they can certainly move).


Anyone else encountered strange or dangerous wildlife? 😬
