A Badger?

I was at a farmer's market one night last week and as I passed a tent that was sent up to sell annual passes to the state parks in the area when this little guy caught my eye. They had numerous animals (dead and stuffed) set up-including a coyote and a river otter. I saw this guy and had no idea what animal it was. Apparently it's a badger! They looked quite different then the only badger's I'd ever seen (which I'll admit were only ones in cartoons I watched growing up). I just loved the ears and expression on this sweet looking animal. Although I must admit that the 3-inch-long claws were a bit intimidating!
