Two 8" diameter, deep burrows and a newish-looking scat about 15 feet away that I believe is also badger. Note the large claw marks on the side of the burrow wall.
This badger was out in a pasture. It ran to its burrow, but remained above ground as I drove through the pasture.
Saw a badger crossing Alpine Rd on my way to work in the morning. Not too often do you get to see these guys, so pretty neat.
Active badger den

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.
