Description

Its a mystery what killed this Badger, no sign of predation, and few predators around large and mean enough to take in on, virtually no traffic on this road so unlikely killed by a vehicle. There were some cliffs above, it could have fallen from? This was at 10,500ft, and they do over-winter at this location and are often seen by ski area staff in winter digging through snow.
