Description

Adult badger ran across SH118 at ~2000 hrs in daylight. Desert xeric scrub shubland south of Kent, TX. The two photographs are poor and not even definitive or diagnostic as to the badger's identity but it was an adult badger. It ran across the road as I approached at highway speed and both photos are through the windshield. The badger ran to the south through the mowed shoulder vegetation (hence the "badger butt in a bush" photo), through the fenceline and into the dense shrubland of the pasture. In the better photo, the animal is disappearing into the vegetation (upper dead center), in the poorer one it is the blob in the center of the photo.
