Hellooooooo Badgers!

This is just a quick post today because I wanted to demonstrate just how clever Badgers actually are. Now, I’m sure that most of you wouldn’t think much of the average honey badger, but little do you know just how clever the honey badger is (sort of like Brock Badgers!). As the story goes, the founding committee of the University wanted to have a mascot that was as Canadian as the university, and the Brock Beavers hardly sounds terrifying when up next to the Guelph Gryphons…well what else could take on a fearsome mascot like that than the terrifying, the terrible, the clever Canadian honey badger!?

Don’t believe me? Below is a link to a clip clip from BBCTwo’s Natural World featuring the cleverest of honey badgers (except for Boomer, of course!). Watch and enjoy future badgers, hopefully you’ll grow up to be strong and smart like this honey badger!

Turns out Badgers may just be the cleverest of the clever mascots out there….who knew!?

Brock on, Badgers!!


About Iain

Hello Future Badgers! My name is Iain, and I am a fourth year Concurrent Education I/S B.A./B.Ed. student (teaching subjects in Drama & History) and Head Resident in the Residence Department here at Brock! First thing’s first, I love this newfound second home that I call Brock and I’m hoping I can pass off all of that love to all of you! This summer I spent an incredible four weeks teaching and living at an Outdoor Education Camp in the Algonquin Highlands and would love to tell you all about it! Through the experiences as an actively involved University student here at Brock, I have seen that maintaining a social life, as well as an academic life is just as important to becoming a well-rounded and balanced student (it’s almost like eating both your fruits and vegetables!) In the coming months, I hope to pass this knowledge on to you, to ensure that your love of all things Brock grows strong. Brock On Badgers!
