Police in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate said investigators sent out the helicopter because it had night vision capabilities.
“The crew on this mission is going to be teased terribly,” police in the nearby town of Neuwied said in a statement.
Police were able to identify the screams when they saw one of the love-crazed badgers, whose howls of pleasure apparently “can be mistaken for human screams,” police said.
