The badger occurs almost everywhere in Sweden except for the high mountain regions (fjällen) and on Gotland. It occurs in the Royal National City Park, but is rarely seen since it is nocturnal. The badger is not an effective hunter and often has to make do with whatever it can scavenge. It hibernates until the spring whether early or late. The badger’s sett has several entrances, similar to a fox den. A giant sett is located in Björnnäsvägen in Lill-Jans forest. The two main causes of death are fights among badgers and traffic accidents, especially in built-up areas with heavy traffic.
