"Professor McGonagall was shouting at someone who, by the sound of it, had turned his friend into a badger."

Badgering[2] (incantation unknown), was a transfiguration spell that turned a target into a badger.[1]


In late 1992, a student in Transfiguration class accidentally performed this spell on a classmate, earning a shouting from Professor McGonagall as consequence.[1]
