The honey badger typically weighs 40 lbs. or so. One was observed killing a 2000 lbs. Cape buffalo. A honey badger raided a farmer's chick coop several nights, so, one night, he went out to await it. He had a shotgun and fired but missed. Then, his wife inside the house heard him scream. He screamed for about an hour before he died. One attacked an elephant, but that was too much for him, so the elephant stomped him into the ground.
