Badger and Coyote Caught On Video As Traveling Companions

It's like a real life Disney cartoon! lol

A team of researchers in California documenting how wildlife interact with roadway structures have found a coyote and badger that appear to be close traveling companions. The charming footage, showing a coyote waiting at the mouth of a culvert until its badger pal is ready to follow, was captured via a remote-sensor camera near Gilroy, in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Our wildlife cameras recorded a coyote and badger traveling together in the San Francisco Bay Area of California! Scientific studies and Native American records show that coyotes and badgers have been known to hunt together. But this is the first video documentation (that we know of) where a coyote and badger use a human-made structure to travel together safely. This footage was captured as part of our research to better understand how wildlife moves across the southern Santa Cruz Mountains. We have more than 50-remote sensor cameras helping us capture and study scenes like this. The findings help us improve and expand safe wildlife habitats and crossings in the Bay Area.
