    Hopefully someone can help with posting these pictures correctly - how can I post multiple pictures? can I put more than one Image URL on that line?

    Anyway, I have a family member that works with the Iowa DNR and she received these pictures from a game warden. Apparantly this sucker got caught in the round baler and is still alive at the time of these photos, which I can believe, I used to trap in my younger days and by far the toughest critters I encountered were badgers. I do not know what they ended up doing to the badger.

    Here are the three image URLs for those more web savvy than me:

    Wouldn't this one make a nice house pet? Somebody should cut it free and nurse it back to health. Perfect for 'western' style entertainment.

    Wow, I'm impressed that the thing survived going through the baler. Something that spins like that would kill a small animal quickly I would think...but obviously not, or he just got lucky. Do you happen to know where in Iowa this was? Did this just happen recently? Josh

    Badgers are one tough & mean varmint...thats why it was still alive after going through the baler.
    Those pictures are great also!

    Josh--
    I do not have any info other than the pictures, heck they could be years old for that matter, although the info that I posted came from what is a reliable source for me. The last time hay was baled in Iowa would be late summer '08 so it is safe to assume that if they are indeed from Iowa that they are at least 6-7 months old.

    Better to just shoot him, he's probably busted up inside or send him to Obambi postage due...Bill
