In reference to the poem, the Badger folk dwelled in secret holes or burrows under the rolling hills between the Barrow-downs and the Old Forest - similar to a Badger set or crude Hobbit-hole. These badgers were sentient and capable of speech. A notable member of the the folk, Badger-brock, was thought to be a leader as he was the one who captured Tom Bombadil and was written as having a 'snowy forehead' and 'dark, blinking eyes'.
They were said to be of badgerish nature and appearance with a slight Hobbitness about them.
