can a badger be tamed, and kept as a pet
Wow, what if an alien species came down and wanted to keep jaycee123 as a pet?
That would be a NO! Wild animals are known to turn on you.
I like your thinking :) that would be cool but sadly it is not possible :P
raise it from a baby. anythings possible!
I'm sure if you raised the badger from birth it could be kept as a pet. Badgers are naturally defensive, violent animals though, and it would be illegal to keep one without a permit.
Badgers are really dangerous. They like living in burrows, too. They wouldn't be fun pets anyway.
No. Even domesticated animals will turn on you occasionally. It would take generations for an animal to become domesticated. It took well over 50 years of breeding and culling for a group of Russians to get foxes to some semblance of domestication. http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/03/taming-wild-animals/ratliff-text
If you enjoy being bit and mauled, sure, have a ball!
