The contentious moment occurred during a segment in which Craven shared acts of kindness from viewers for the Wild Britain initiative. Home videos highlighted various creatures enjoying manufactured habitats and treats provided by the audience.

"Samantha from Harrogate has a picnic bench fit for a badger," Craven remarked, as the footage depicted a badger feasting on the food left out by a Countryfile viewer.

Jeremy Clarkson, who had previously highlighted the negative impact of badgers on farmers' cattle in his show "Clarkson's Farm," expressed his dissatisfaction by sharing the clip on Instagram with a simple, "FFS," addressing his 7.2 million followers.

Kaleb Cooper, responding to Clarkson's post, echoed his frustration with a comment, "Just thinking the same," accompanied by face palm emojis. Both Clarkson and Cooper appeared dissatisfied with the positive portrayal of badgers in the wild.

This discontent is particularly understandable for Cooper, considering his firsthand experience with the challenges posed by badgers, as highlighted in "Clarkson's Farm." The disagreement highlights a difference in perspective regarding the perception of badgers, emphasising the ongoing debate surrounding their impact on agriculture.
