This Badger I found digging for food. When he noticed I had been discovered him, he made it very clear I was NOT welcomed. I have been charged by Bears, Elk, Deers, Hawks but I wanted no part of this little spirited animal FULL of teeth!
I photographed him in the Bridger -Teton National Forest in northwestern Wyoming. The behavior of badgers differs by family, but all shelter underground, living in burrows, which may be very extensive. Some are solitary, moving from home to home, while others are known to form clans. Badgers can be fierce animals and will protect themselves and their young at all costs, and are capable of fighting off much larger animals, such as wolves and bears.
