Camera Trap Wrecker

I guess you’d think my biggest fear with putting camera traps out on the marsh would be them being stolen; well, it isn’t! I can’t set up camera traps anywhere the cattle are able to roam: they will find and most likely trash them, as I have shown with a previous video post. It’s not only the marsh cattle that don’t like being filmed, other animals living on the marsh feel similarly.

The animal featured in this video not only doesn’t like being filmed, it has worked out how to switch the camera trap off. So, the biggest threat to my automatic cameras on the marsh are the animals living there, and I am beginning to think some are smarter than people might wish to believe.

    • Thanks Tom. I hope the marsh badgers are not more intelligent than me; if they are, I might look into the benefits of living in a hole in the ground. My current home is very warm and secure, but I might just be missing out on a better way of living my life. 😉

    • Well, some people have invested a lot of time and energy designing and building obstacle courses and puzzles for badgers to solve. There is no smoke without fire is what I say.
