When I was a kid I trapped this fella. I was in school and my brother came and got me out of school to deal with this fella. Back then a badger was protected in my area and even though I was a bit of a rebel, I used common sense when it came to conservation. When I showed up we took a few photos. How the heck was I going to let him go, could have been a she too. Back to the house we went, I grabbed a 30 gallon galvanized tub. went back and flopped the tub over the badger. Pulled his leg out, shook paws and let him go, then ran like, you know fast as I could. Later on I went back to get the tub.
