    Badgers Discovered Living as Humans in House in East Lansing, MI

    ...trained to dress and act like humans at an early age, a family of show badgers was discovered to have been living independently of their owners, who had passed away unexpectedly decades ago. The badgers made themselves right at home in their former owners' home, digging a new basement under the sub-flooring. Carol Angleston of East Lansing veterinary clinic, who has examined the badgers, says they have only minor health issues and will be kept under observation for the time being.

    "They are very interesting animals. They tend toward an upright stance during their daily activities. They also vocalize mucgh more frequently than normal, wild badgers do." Ms. Angleston is an expert on badgers, having acted as supervising vet for Wildcare Badger Rescue in Anne Arbor for the last 20 years.
    Huh. Go figure...

    Did the authorities seriously have to pester these badgers?

    I know, right? They should just grandfather them into the property after 20 years...

    There must be quite some den under that house. I like that wildlife aid YouTube channel with the badger guy owner / volunteer coordinator and animal rescue sensai... Simon... whatsis face... hold on...

    Here it is:

    The wildlife aid vets are great people, by and large. Frugal budgets make life hard for them, but they seem to love their jobs for the most part. It's a hard job. It's a hard animal, too, the badger is.

    Cool Re: Badgers Discovered Living as Humans in House in East Lansing, MI

    That is no surprise. Badgers made a den under this guys garage in the back yard behind a bush.
    His bird dog would not go near that area just stand across the back yard and bark that direction.
    The Badgers eventually went to a wildlife rescue then relocated back in the forest area. Never less his dog still barks at
    the back of the garage.
