unnamedWhy Wisconsin is the Badger State

The badger (Taxidea taxus) was designated the official state animal of Wisconsin in 1957. Wisconsin’s nickname is “The Badger State” because miners dug tunnels into hillsides searching for lead in the 1800’s, reminding people of badgers.

Found throughout Wisconsin, badgers are short, stocky, solitary animals with incredibly long thick claws. Badgers stay hidden inside their shallow dens during the day, hunting mostly at night for small animals found in grasslands like pocket gophers, ground squirrels, rabbits, and small birds.

The badger is a ferocious fighter with an attitude and should not be bothered. Badgers will snarl, growl, and can give off a musky and scent like a skunk if disturbed. Badgers spend 90 percent of their time in their den (or “sett”) during Wisconsin winters.¬†from State Symbols USA
