When we first saw the badger it was exploring right next to the road. We found a pullout farther down and watched as she continued to explore the ridge line near the road and then casually meandered to a nearby hillside.
I got a great look at the badger but was unable to get a photo. It apparently was digging.
Saw an American badger walking through my neighbourhood in central Ottawa.
It was quite clearly a badger - not a skunk or opossom. Got a good look at it in the early morning (perhaps around 4am)
The camera wasn't set up to record the proper date.
So sad to see this. Looked like it had just happened. By the time I left Shell Beach, someone had removed it.
So sad to see a roadkill badger.
Not a happy badger; don't know what happened to it.
A pregnant-looking (and thus presumably female...) Badger waddled/scurried out of some medium-height grass in front of me and then crouched low near the edges of riparian woods. Near Carmel River Mouth.
The American badger (Taxidea taxus) is a North American badger, somewhat similar in appearance to the European badger. It is found in the western and central United States, northern Mexico, and south-central Canada to certain areas of southwestern British Columbia.
