“Badlands” (2017)

Extent

Seen in 2019.

I saw the Swedish-language version on SVT. Not to be confused with Badlantz, a show about Annika Lantz taking a dip.

Subject

A year in the precarious ecology of Badlands National Park.

Commentary

Humans intrude only to pipe a delousing agent into prairie dog burrows from ATVs; US citizens apparently do not walk. The little prairie owls are cool, and the swallows biting the bullet to avoid ticks cleverly lurking in their old nests.
