Pacific Northwest Badgers

Hi Everyone,  I’m from western Washington State and have been trying to find an American Badger for a very long time but to no avail.   Since I have to trek to the desert to find them I’m always limited to one or two night visits to their habitat.  Does anyone have any pointers of where a very active badger area/natal den might be found in the Washington/Oregon/British Columbia region?

    Hi Joe

    I can’t swear to how reliable it is but I saw a Badger in among the Washington Ground Squirrels at Moses Lake in Washington State. http://mammalwatching.com/Nearctic/nearctusawashington.html

    Given I saw it at 11am (it popped out of its burrow when I was squeaking in a Squirrel) then I suspect they ought to be easy to find at night there. Snake River near Boise is also a very good place for them (see http://mammalwatching.com/Nearctic/nearctusaidaho.html) cheers

    I live on the Olympic Peninsula and a dog on our property drug in a mummified badger carcass. I was surprised to have one found in the area at all.
