Little Badger Buries Entire Cow — on Camera

The badger spent five days excavating a hole around the cow carcass and burying the animal in it, before lolling around near its cache of food for weeks. “Not to anthropomorphize too much, but he looks like a really, really, happy badger, rolling in the dirt and living the high life,” University of Utah doctoral candidate in biology Evan Buechley, who discovered the footage, said in a statement. To document the behavior of scavengers like vultures, Buechley dragged seven calf carcasses out to the Grassy Mountains west of Salt Lake City.
