- "Professor McGonagall was shouting at someone who, by the sound of it, had turned his friend into a badger."
Badgering is a transfiguration spell that turns a target into a badger.
In late 1992, a student in Transfiguration class accidentally performed this spell on a classmate, earning a shouting from Professor McGonagall as consequence.

Notes and references
- ↑ On the Harry Potter: Trading Card Game the Transfigured boy is refered to as a "Badgered Boy", so it seems logical "Badgering" is the correct term, albeit never actually written
