Have you ever had one of these in your yard? I hope not! As you can see, they do a fair amount of damage while they're excavating their tunnels and dens, but even more importantly, they're vicious animals and have no fear of humans. Why would they, when they can run 19mph and have impressive teeth?
What it is it? A badger. And though they're supposedly nocturnal, this one obviously didn't get that memo.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
