Behavior: American badger hunts Black-Tailed Prairie Dog

For: Smithsonian Channel/Terra Mater/Mike Birkhead Associates - “Badlands: Hard Rock Tough Lives”

Info:  A hunting behavior rarely filmed, a badger mother persues prairie dogs above ground. Normally they dig up the burrows to access their prey, but this clever badger took the sneak approach. Filmed just outside Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
