Oh, bother - it looks like England has a peculiar pest problem! According to Digital Spy, a recent road collapse in Leicestershire is being blamed on badgers. Officials say the animals repeatedly tunneled under the road, causing its support to weaken. Eventually, this lack of stability caused two large craters to form in the road.



The road is now closed off to all cars while it is being repaired. Crews estimate the damage will take about three weeks to fix. Workers are trying to reopen the road as soon as possible, but are also being careful to protect the badgers' natural habitat.

Locals say the animals' habitat is expanding, thanks to a badger boom. Folks from Leicestershire remarked that they often spot the creatures, sometimes even finding them inside their homes or offices.
