    Saw This In The Forest



    Badgers are pretty brave animals for their size ... this one even started to give me relatively long, single sound (threaten me)


    Found this from net .... Zoo in Latvia. Badger had escaped and they tried to direct it back to its cage.

    Cool! Did you take that photo yourself?

    I've only encountered badgers on the streets while walking home at night, but never in its natural environment. One time, I thought it was a cat and walked over to pet it. Luckily, I saw what it was before I got that far.

    That was older photo. I was jogging this time (not carrying my Olympus Pen F).

    Badger in middle of cold cementic city? What it did there? I feel sad for it. I have known that there are rabbits, foxes, eagle-owls etc. closely to cities or bigger parks of cities ... but never though badgers.

    Not in a huge city, but around 20.000 people. They seem to enjoy easy access to food-waste in residential areas at night time, and retiring to some secluded bushy area when the sun is up. I've seen them plenty of times walking around at night in my hometown, last time this summer. They seem to like living that way, and they are pretty much left alone. My only problem with them, is that they may get into fights with cats, and potentially kill them.

    In Sweden?

    Yes ... one can kill house cat pretty easily if it only can catch one.

    In Norway. But I would assume there are badgers in most small and medium sized towns in Southern Scandinavia. Up North might be too cold for them.

    We have badgers here in Trųndelag too, it's mild close to the sea. I've seen them in the city a few times. Not sure if they live further inland.

    Based on Finland .... I could think they have spread already to Umeå in Sweden ... and little by little to Northern as climate becomes warmer. They sleep at winter seasons (from late October/mid-November to March/early April).

    I've never seen a badger before. With that white stripe I thought it looked like a skunk. I've seen skunks on tv. Where I live, Miami, Florida, I usually see small lizards, and I've seen an opossum.

    A few years ago I rescued 2 baby opossums. I found them in an empty trash can with a dead mother. We nursed them back and believe it or not they became pets like cats. They look ugly, they don't smell, their fur is super clean, they don't carry rabies. They like to eat rotten veggies and fruit. They died about 5 years later.

    I'm going to see if I find some pictures and post them later.

    We also had raccoons, they make good pets too. You have to get them young.
