Casper - This strange mound could be seen for miles across the prairie near Lusk, Wyoming. Upon investigation, Game Warden Vandeberg found a badger had tried to bury a mule deer.  This was a first for Brady who has seen badgers cache many different animals, but never a cache 10 feet across in size.  A badger will often cache food to hide it from other animals and to make the food last longer.
