Badgers mountain biker encounter Utah

“Once I realized they were badgers, all these memories of like honey badgers versus mountain lions popped into my head. I was like, oh jeez, okay. These are dangerous. Let’s not approach them. I wasn’t provoking them at all, and they just rushed me.”

Draper, UTAH — A mountain biker in Utah was stopped in his tracks by a clan of badgers and they turned aggressive nearly forcing him off the trail. KSL reports Brandon Farzad was out on a trail ride when came upon the animals. He kept his distance but one the badgers snarled advanced on him.
