Do badgers eat cattle?

    No. Badgers mostly eat insects, beetle grubs, earthworms, fruit that has fallen from trees and other similar foods. I was not able to find a report of a badger actually attacking cattle (though I admit that might be amusing to see). Badgers do affect cattle, however, by spreading a particular strain of tuberculosis that can be spread to cattle. There have been attempts, particularly in Europe, to manage the badger population to control TB in cattle, but they have not been entirely successful.
