"Badger Alcatraz"

Think on that for a few moments.


#3

They escaped together… with a camera crew conveniently nearby. Who did nothing to stop them.


#4

They should flash * Re-enactment * over the video.
And really, do you want to stand between a mean honey badger and freedom?


#5

So? did the crazy private zoo owner finally give in and let the badger snuggle with him whenever it wanted?


#6

Honey Badger doesn’t give a shit.


#7

I have and all I can think of is that the missed an opportunity to use ‘badgcatraz’


#8

Badgettica! Badgettica! Badgettica! Badgettica!


#9

Even so…attempting to cage a honey badger, and maintaining it’s the nuisance.


#10

All members of the weasel family do like to escape, you can’t keep them contained.

If you watch the full show, you see a much broader picture.

The honey badger isn’t just curious, inventive and smart. When fighting over a food source, it’s ferocious. It will attack almost any animal. And because it never quits, it can get much larger animals to blink first and run away with their tails between their legs.

I think the problem wasn’t when the badger snuggled with him. It’s that it would get bored and pick fights with the lions by following them around attacking their balls, and eventually one of the lions horribly gored the poor badger (after having his balls bitten) and the badger took months to recover.
