The Badger who got a whole lot of sh*t!


Here’s a story from a reader named Jerry about a Badger that picked the wrong place to dig a hole. Jerry wrote:

My parents, who were South Dakota ranchers, often took the family to the Missouri River on weekends with their motorhome. It seemed like we had a Badger who kept coming close to the ranch and would dig big holes close to the yard. One time when we came home after a long weekend my father saw that a Badger had dug a huge hole about 100 yards from the house.

Instead of dumping the camper sewer into the septic tank he suggested we try to get rid of the Badger and at the same time have some fun. You guessed the rest of the story! Dad drove the motorhome out into the pasture and stuck the sewer hose into the badger hole.

I have never seen such an ugly and mad Badger in my life as he exited the hole. He headed west and never returned! Problem solved! My father and I laughed for many years about our dumping the camper into a Badger hole.

Guess Steve never heard of an outhouse. Not the concrete lined one’s of today but those of yesteryear. Dug by hand ( no backhoes in those days) and sprinkled with lime when odor got too bad. Surprisingly the world did not come to an end.


That is so bad for the environment, you should be ashamed. Global warming just got extended 100,000 more years, thanks for that.


Like it what a story.

I would deem that a “natural” cure to the problem!
