Yes Virginia, there are Badgers in Clovis: Officers remove badger from outside restaurant

From the Clovis News Journal - Whether it was looking for a late-night snack or just lost its way, a badger that wandered into the bushes at a Clovis fast-food restaurant Sunday night attracted a lot more attention than it bargained for. Around 8 p.m. Clovis police and animal control were dispatched. The adult badger was captured without incident and relocated to an area near the city’s landfill south of Clovis. “I’m on break and there’s this guy poking around in our bushes,” said Mark Miller, a night manager at the restaurant. “He said there was a badger in the bushes. “He was hissing at us quite a bit and trying to hide, but he was pretty spooked.” Miller said he never learned the man’s name, but the stranger told him he followed the badger to Taco Box after it crossed in front of his vehicle while making its way from the park. Police Sgt. Mike Harmer said it was the first time he’d seen a call regarding a badger in more than 18 years in the department. Read more
