    Confirmed roadkill: Badger

    IF anybody is interested, there is a dead badger about 6-7 miles east of Iowa City on Highway 6. When I first saw it I thought it was just another skunk, for Hwy 6 seems to be littered with dead skunk carcasses. But it was way too big. Hmmm, what a strange looking raccoon, said I, and went on my merry way. Upon returning to the same point on the road a few hours later on my way home, well, i got curious, and yes, I got out of my car to check on a piece of roadkill. Freakin' badger, dude. Not an easy find around here.


    Reminds me of the joke: Why did the badger cross the road?

    It was stapled to the chicken.

    Re: Confirmed roadkill: Badger

    I wouldnt have gotten out of my car in fear he would have came back to life and ripped my arm off. We caught one in a trap once, came and checked it in the AM, couldnt find the trap anywhere but the dirt was all dug up. All of a sudden the dirt starts moving and he came leaping out of the earth like satan. He had burried himself. I may or may not have shat myself...just saying.

    I might go pick it up and take it to the What Cheer Caseys so they can make fritters over lunch break and talk about big ten expansion...

    I'm sure some Hawk fan will take credit for killing it.

    Re: Confirmed roadkill: Badger

    Considering what folks in Wisconsin do to roadkill, I understand its need to die here instead.

    nah, if they killed it, they would've cooked it for dinner.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: Confirmed roadkill: Badger

    Saw my uncle kill two of them with a tire iron, pretty fricking neat when you are 10 yrs. old. They hated them in S Dakota, dug big holes in the pastures.

    We had a very similar experience while trapping. When we went to check the trap there was a hole about 4ft diameter and 2ft deep. I made a necklace out of one of the claws. Those things are awesome.

    Re: Confirmed roadkill: Badger

    It's been years since I've seen one. Didn't know their were some still around.

    Civic cats are the other animal I haven't seen in a long time.

    Those buggers are mean and they can dig fast.

    Badgers have a rather good flavor when cooked.
