Yes, the Badger is gone.
I have released him into the Wilds, although he refuses to go. He is hanging out back with the Hamster of Doom. I believe the Badger has agreed to be the Planner of Routes and will help organize the Coconut Bombings.
Best stay on his good side.
I will let him know who has asked after him. Weaselrina and Jackie will be happy to know that they are safe for the time being as I doubt he will send the Hamster their way.
