The American Badger is a fossorial carnivore, preying predominantly on gophers ...

... and other small animals, such as squirrels, moles, rats, and some ground-walking hawks. Badgers will eat carrion from wild cats and mountain (or nittany) lions. They will also eat plant foods, such as maize (and blue), and nuts (sometimes from a buckeye tree), beans, and sunflower seeds. If backed into a corner, they will protect themselves against native humans, such as Spartans, Hoosiers, Illini, and even those that make boilers and those that husk corn.

(thanks, wikipedia)

  1. I'm thinking that I'll need to add a comment regarding Badgers on Saturday, because this little nugget helped the UW Men's Basketball Team get through a sluggish game with a "W" on Wednesday night at Iowa.
