This beautiful badger cub had been found on a country lane, the previous night, too exhausted to run away and the finder had picked it up and carried it home! When we arrived to collect it, we found her nestled in a pile of towels in the bath looking very comfy! The cub was approx 14-16 weeks old and had a beautiful pale pewter coloured coat, she was still very docile and weak legged. A check up at the vets found her to be uninjured, just exhausted and a careful diet should help her 'unpleasant' digestion. With a spray to remove the fleas from her coat, Blue could then settle to rest in a snug bed. Over the next few days Blue ate and slept, her strength returning to her legs and we had hopes of returning her home. However, despite the help of the family that found her, it was impossible to locate a sett. It seemed the cub must have travelled the lane until too tired to carry on. Once tested Negative for Bovine TB and treated for worms, Blue travelled to Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset to join other badger cubs and be rehabilitated back to the wild as a new family.
