Stoffel was rescued from a trap and sent to heal at the animal rehab center at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.  Once healthy, the badger proved to be a master escape artist, even getting mauled by lions when he got out of his own pen and in with the lions.  His ingenuity at getting out of whatever enclosure Brian and his crew put him in is amazing to see.  It will make you feel lucky that you’re only dealing with cattle, goats, and sheep.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
