I saw it on video and it was fantastically brave and kind.

I used to know someone who ran an open campsite in Tanzania and he said packs of wild dogs , leopards, elephants his staff wouldn’t turn a hair, a honey badger would clear the camp at a rate of knots

Sean, loved the video🤗, rescuing honey badger!

Such a wonderful story. I’m so glad you were able to help it free.

As I said before you two are the man…errr…the men! This made me tear up and is such a beautiful and touching story. It well highlights your hearts as well as the credo for Londolozi. Great job!!!

It’s a fantastic story!
Well done, guys!
Thank you for sharing!

What an amazing event. I wonder if the honey badger will retain any memory of being rescued by humans.

Thank you so much for helping this creature, it is so unusual to see and wow such a temper honey badger have… Londolozi definitely is the place of human compassion too

Just brilliant. Well done and thank you.

You guys are awesome! Thank you. I’m sure the little guy was grateful!!

Fantastic story & video!
Sean with the clean-shaven look for the narrative!

What a creative solution to this badger’s dilemma and the compassion you two exhibited was inspiring! Thank you for your kindness.

Gold star for the two of you and happy that ut decided not to chase you!

Amazing Rescue, Proud of the work you guys did.

What a brilliant rescue Pete and Sean! You deserve the “Legion d’Honneur”, one of the highest french recognition medal. Or at least a beer from your colleagues rangers… Let’s hope that this honey badger will spread the word among his friends about humans being nice guys (no need to run away from them). And soon we will see honey badgers every night…

A great story and very well told. Having been on hundreds of game drives, I am always curious where Rangers draw the line at helping animals vs. it’s the bush, things happen and Mother Nature is in charge.

Started following your posts a few weeks ago and you are the highlight of my day! Loved that the Honey Badger is free! I have your book “The Leopards of Londolozi by Lex Hes” published in 1991!

Hopefulful perseverance and joy speak best for this task and outcome. You definitely feel “Light” after all is said ad done, while seeing the badger be able to run free.

I firmly believe that this honey badger realized after his first fright that you wanted to help, especially when you started to give him water. Animals, in my opinion, can feel whether a person wants to harm them or not. It was really great that you rescued the poor badger! Of course, nature can be very cruel and if you had not accidentally come across this little guy, he would certainly have perished in a horrible way. So it was wonderful that the two of you saved its life. And it is so rare that one gets such great photos of a honey badger. I have only seen maybe two during a safari so far.

I’m sure it will be a story we all remember and share for quite sometime …so I can well imagine how you guys must feel. Such a brave, super kind deed ..one very lucky Badger !!! Well done Sean and Pete 👌🏻🙏🏻💕

Sean, I love this, one of my favorite stories/sightings! So awesome you guys were able to save it. After the Honey Badger was freed, did you guys go back to the spot it was stuck to try to figure out further how it got in there in the first place and what it was stuck on?

Saw this on the video blog yesterday….that is one very lucky honey badger that you were around to save it. Well done to both of you, an experience I’m sure you’ll never forget!

Loved seeing this yesterday! Absolutely fantastic! It really got me thinking how did the Honey Badger get in there in the first place?

Sean & Pete, What an incredible and compassiopnate feat! How the heck did it get stuck in the first place! It was so fortuitous that you found it and how special that you saved the poor guy (or girl!). Thanks for sharing!

Big hearts, clever rescue and a wonderful video to capture it all. You two may not have made a new friend, but I’m sure it was relieved to finally escape.

Such an amazing story.

Bless you, guys.

What a lucky honey badger! You were his guardian angels and helped him out of this situation – you are true heroes! Thank you!

Senior Digital Ranger

You guys are awesome, well done!

Wow thank you Sean Zeederberg

Well done to you and Pete Thorpe for saving this honey badger (Especially since I heard that there is only something like 1,000 honey badgers left in the wild)

Protector of all living things 💕💕💕

Well done on that rescue! Never give up! Never give in!

All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you!
