Correct! This describes an American badger. From the 1800s to early 1900s, badgers were found in the prairies of the northern 2/3 of the state of Illinois. From 1900-1950, the range shrank to the northern half (the line from Fulton County northeast to Iroquois County with a disjunct range in Champaign County). Currently, badgers are found statewide in Illinois.
