A rare sight in West Kelowna

Not long after someone sent a video to Castanet showing a rare badger rambling along the side of Highway 97 in West Kelowna, one of the animals has been found dead along the road.

Badgers are an endangered species in BC. Conservation efforts have been underway for years in the region to try to bolster the population. It’s estimated there are only between 300 and 400 of them left in this province.
