SETTS MANIACS; Lust-crazed badgers are noisy pests.
SEX-MAD badgers are making life hell for home owners in a once quiet cul-de-sac.
Their screams of passion have kept locals awake for nights on end.
And the Brock-around-the-clock intruders have also left a trail of destruction in gardens.
More than 40 have created 19 setts around Kew Crescent in Gleadlees, Sheffield, and residents say it's like - being under siege. Retired butcher Michael Broomhead, 60, said: "When they're having sex, they howl and scream. They've trampled plants and felled three trees." The badgers dug out the footings of Richard Oldham's new pounds 2,000 decking. He moaned: "The garden is riddled with their tunnels."
Neighbour John Cooper, 73, said: "They've completely taken over."
But the badgers, a protected species, appear to be untouchable.
Monica Ward, of the South Yorkshire Badger Group, said: "It's illegal to interfere with their setts."
