KAMLOOPS - The antics of this cute badger family kept staff entertained at Thompson Rivers University while the family of four called the campus home for a while this summer.

Natural resource faculty member Dr. Karl Larsen caught the mom, lovingly named TRUdy, and her three kits clowning around near their den in July.

This video clearly demonstrates badgers and humans are more similar than many realize as the siblings jump all over each other and mom tries to keep them under control.

The family has since moved out of the spotlight to a unknown location.
