I wonder if our raccoons and English badgers fill the same eco-slot.
There are badgers 50 miles or so south of me, but I don't think they are quite as omni as yours.
Raccoons eat everything.

Pete and I saw an Eastern Coyote yesterday. This is the best picture I could get. He was a very tall loping animal, filling that wolf niche...

I'd assume Badgers are not as graceful as our raccoons for dumpster diving etc?

Just looking at the Woodland Trust link in post #1695 it says that badgers will raid bins in times of food shortage.

I imagine they do this by pulling a bin over as they do not seem to be particularly agile or athletic.

They are opportunist feeders to an extent and will have what is seasonally available, but I think their opportunism falls into the 'when all else fails' category, earthworms being their first port of call.

I was going to complain about the pic until I realized that I have been surrounded by (western) coyotes for about fifty years and never taken a better one.
I hear them close by every night, but have seen only a dozen or so.
I will try my trail cam again tonight.

I think it's one of two cubs, now well grown, that have been visiting for the last couple of months.



They're always welcome and I put out some dog food for them but they also seem to have developed a liking for the peanuts that I leave for the Badgers.
In our local paper there will be an article once in awhile about someone thought they found a puppy. It grows into a fox and is the family dog. Then some dik calls Wildlife and they come to get it for euthanasia. People here have skunks, racoons, flying squirrels, snakes and gawd knows what else, but owning a deer, bear or fox will get you in trouble. It is shameful to make the family cry.

Shameful to give up the family "dog" without a fight.

No problem, that 350 lb bear is sound asleep, we'll just crawl in there, jab him with the needle, and change the collar batteries... piece of cake...

I've mentioned before that Benny spends a lot of time killing rodents which is useful since we have chickens and they attract a lot of nuisance critters. Recently, I saw Benny had caught another rabbit. He carried it around a fair amount during the day but settled in behind the house where he began to dissect it. He was joined by a chicken. The dog ripped the carcass apart leaving the head and front legs for the chicken to work on while he ate the rear legs. What a strange little dude he is.

Smart, he knows the chickens bring the toys to the yard so he pays a royalty.

"Strange little dude"? I don't know about you but around here almost all of the squirrels come with front and back legs.

Hey Fargon, careful dangling your footsies off that boat.
This woman was standing in chest deep water when a Muskie grabbed her and pulled her under like a gator.
