Somewhere in South Africa's Kruger National Park, Brian Jones and Stoffel continue their battle for supremacy.
Jones is an optimistic wildlife conservationist at an animal rehabilitation center. Stoffel is a surly honey badger Jones rescued from a trap about 20 years ago.
They square off at regular intervals in "Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem," airing Wednesday, Feb. 19, on PBS's Nature program at 7 p.m. on KUED Ch. 7.
It's a tribute to a toothy creature that looks like the spawn of a skunk and a sloth with the charm of a komodo. Beekeepers often shoot them because they destroy costly hives to get at their favorite food, ignoring angry swarms. One badger survived 300 stings.
