Default Badger, or is it a wolverine?

Ok, is it a regional name thing, or are there genetic differences? I came across this one at the Pilot Truck Stop Friday night. Look at the claws!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Yes, definitely a badger. They are pretty tough critters. Don't try to pet it.

You need a weinie dog to help hunt that thing. I've always wanted to see one or two dashounds go after one.

With those claws, I would be afraid that it would tear the pups apart.

Yep, badger would definitely win. They can take on critters much larger than they are. They are pretty darn tough.

Woverines are a whole different animal. Both very good fighters.

That's what I've always wondered about but my mom has 10 of them(she breeds, shes not the crazy dog lady.....yet.) and I've see them work together. As one retreats another is moving in from a completely different angle. A cat didn't stand a chance against 3 of them(we saved the cat).
