Tornado Badger Gates are specifically designed to enable badgers to pass freely through a fence, without causing any damage to the structure.
These animals tend to be very territorial in nature, often using set routes within their habitat to move from one place to the next.
If a stock or deer fence is put up across a badger run, they will either dig under the fence, or attempt to break through. In both cases this causes damage to the fence and leaves an open passage for other animals. Tornado Badger Gates completely eliminate this problem.
Tornado Badger Gates can be installed quickly and easily into existing fences, and can be locked to allow one-way only access for badgers through a fencing line.
You are responsible for not disturbing badgers and for not interfering with or damaging badgers’ setts or their paths, and for complying with legislation in this regard. Accordingly, any use of badger gates should be undertaken only under the supervision and advice of an ecologist experienced in badger work and, where necessary, appropriate licences should be in place before work commences.”
