Are there badgers in New Brunswick

There are absolutely no badgers in New Brunswick, according to the Canadian badger census conducted in 2016.

New Brunswick is located in Canada, and there’s no question that it hosts a wide variety of species. The census was done by the Badger Trust International and helps determine the over-all population of badgers worldwide. As of 2016, they found 561 different confirmed locations for all 7 subspecies (Meles meles) around 56 countries all over the world. In North America, which is where Canada falls under, there are at least 2 locations confirmed for each subspecies within their boundaries. The badger species is listed as least concern, according to the IUCN red list of endangered species.

It’s unclear why New Brunswick was looked at in particular, but there are no badgers in New Brunswick. The Badger Trust International has confirmed this.
This is a colloquialism that means there is nothing wrong with the province of New Brunswick in Canada, despite being scoured thoroughly. It has an excellent quality of life ranking among other provinces in Canada and very few economic problems. It’s a province the size of Israel or Ireland where the locals have a great sense of community and support for one another.

Where are badgers most commonly found?
Badgers are found in places all around the world, but they’re most commonly found in Europe (particularly England) and North America. They are usually found on farms or near farmlands, which is why they’re thought to spread disease to livestock. Dogs and cats who chase badgers may bring fleas home to their owners, resulting in the spread of disease and parasites like the bubonic plague.

Where in Canada can you find badgers?
Badgers are found in a wide variety of locations in Canada. Some places that have had badgers confirmed by research teams include Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick. The city of Montreal has also been confirmed to have badgers, though there has been no additional evidence to support this theory. Badgers are very common in Alberta, parts of British Columbia like Vancouver Island and the Okanagan region, and Newfoundland & Labrador.

Are badgers dangerous?
Yes, in some cases. Badgers are omnivores and eat small mammals, fruits, nuts, and even other badgers. They’ve been known to “steal” eggs from nests of ground-nesting birds like hens.

This is why it’s recommended that you act like an adult by not disturbing badgers regularly when you see them in the wild:
Badger-safe zones are very common these days around the world because badgers are not only occasionally dangerous, but their unpredictable behavior makes them dangerous.
