have discovered one today. under the wendy house next to an evergreen bush. it's big, under the whole of the shed (5ft long a couple wide as far as I can make out)
what do I dooooooo?
have sprinkled chilli and garlic powder smells like a kebab shop as deterrent.

We had one in our new garden and Dh went every morning and pee'd round the entrance they can't bear the smell and move on them we filled the den in. Please be very careful and make sure not to a fill a den in if there might be cubs in it.

the pee didn't stop them digging. might use some eau de cologne (unwanted christmas gift).
impossible to fill in, it's too big and inacsessible.

We had to keep doing it for months as they kept coming back but we've been clear a year now.
