A parliament of just two tiny owls joined forces to divebomb this badger in a noisy attack.  The burrowing owls repeatedly swooped on the black-and-white mammal, but he bravely plodded on undeterred as their talons grabbed at his fur.<br />
<br />
They launched their assault after the young badger began exploring the Prairie dog burrows they use to nest in South Dakota, America.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS. <br />
