TAWAS CITY, Mich. (AP) - Michigan conservation officials say a badger has been rescued after being left alive in a trap for four days.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/2hXfnJR ) a late December report from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources says a conservation officer responded to a report about the badger, found the trap and released the animal. The badger was found in Iosco County in eastern Michigan.

State officials say the conservation officer located the trapper using information on the trap tag. The trapper said he had been out of the area for a week. The trapper was cited for failure to check traps within 24 hours.
