Rescues 2016Posted by Blog Admin Tue, January 31, 2017 16:18:53
A runner on the coast path at Looe came across a badger cub alone and distressed. She managed to carry it home, then called the RSPCA who collected the baby and we rendezvoused at CVETS, near Truro. The cub was a female, about 12 weeks old but thin, cold and weak. Once warmed and after a good sleep, Regina started to pick up and feeding well. Normally, bigger cubs are housed separately until health tests are done but Regina was so unhappy in her pen that we relented and introduced her to Rex - success - two happy badgers, one snuggly bundle! Once given the all clear with a Negative BovineTB test and treated for worms and coccidea, Regina was ready for the transfer to Secret World Wildlife Rescue to continue her rehabilitation back to the wild.
