Farmer finds missing calf…buried in badger burrow
A farmer has made quite an unexpected discovery in a badger burrow on his farm when he discovered one of his missing calves in the cavity.
Brad Osadczuk from the Osadczuk Cattle Company in Jenner, Alberta, Canada, took to Twitter to share his unusual discovery.
He explained that this was the first time he had ever made such a discovery in his career in farming.
This is a first for me- we had a calf missing for over a day, his mom finally showed us where he was. All I could see is his nose down this badger hole. pic.twitter.com/a6c5sVZf0X

Continuing, the Canadian farmer noted that the calf had been missing for over a day and, eventually, the calf’s mother indicated to him where the calf was located.
He noted that the only part of the calf that could be seen from the surface of the field was its nose and the rest of the animal was discovered in the badger hole.
