Badgers are a common form of small game. Badgers are shy, and tend to run away from humans. Butchering a badger gives around 10 cuts of meat, and a 2 lbs skin. Badger's skin becomes fur when tanned.
Badgers are somewhat slower than other small animals and are not particularly difficult to hunt as a result, but will usually fight back if they feel pressured. They can inflict surprisingly nasty wounds for their size.
