The following videos show a European Badger rolling, crushing and eating a pheasant egg. These eggs were abandoned by their mother and had died before being placed in a shallow trench in the badger’s path. Nine eggs were placed in the trench.
In the first video the badger rolls the egg around, trying to crush it. In the second video the egg is crushed and the badger eats it. When I arrived this morning all nine eggs were gone and there weren’t even eggshells left.
