Incredible Escape Artist – And its a Badger

If I were to ask you to name an animal that is very good at escaping from its enclosure, you may suggest your pet dog or a snake. One animal you probably wouldn’t think of is a badger.

This is the story of a badger called Stoffel who is a modern day Houdini. The video shows his keeper telling is lots of stories of when Stoffel has escaped from his enclosure. It starts out by talking about how Stoffel learned to open bolts. The he learned to climb fences. He even learned how to pile up rocks in the corner of a wall to then climb up and over the wall.
