Some people think they are cute, some think they are a menace.
Some plotholders feed them, others try to scare them away.
There is no doubt they can be a real nuisance. You have to net your crops against them, especially if your plot is near one of their runs into the woodland area. They are very agile and can jump over barriers and they sometimes get caught under nets and do damage trying to get out in a panic.
On the other hand they seem to deter squirrels and rats, and they obviously give a lot of people pleasure. This year’s cubs are getting big now and will soon be running off and becoming independent.
Will YOU miss them?
