Badgers can be mean, and most folks in Wyoming know to be cautious of them. But one resident could tell a swimming badger was in need of assistance. Not all heroes wear capes. Some arrive with oars.

This badger appeared scared to the kayaker on Fontenelle Reservoir. Needing a rescue, the wet furry one lucked out from a friend on kayak.

Let's hope the badger remembers not all people are out to get them.
