Description

Adult male badger dead on Highway 90, near Milepost 327, early morning. Found on north side of the road, possibly badger was headed south. This occurred near the same time flooding and heavy rains caused the San Pedro River to flood its banks... possible reason for the badger to be moving across the road at this location.
