Wisconsin is known as the Badger State and one would assume that we have badgers all over the place, but that is not the case. We’ve had a few badger sightings in southeastern Wisconsin, but overall it is pretty rare to find them in this part of the state.
Badgers are mostly nocturnal animals that spend the daytime underground in their den. They are excellent diggers and quite fierce animals. They prey on small animals and rodents by even digging them out of their dens. Badgers also love to eat insects, especially earthworms, and berries.
