This badger was seen on the roadside and lucky that someone stopped to check it. If left in situ, another vehicle or exposure would have probably killed him. On arrival we met Steve, who had put the badger in a box, in his car for safety from the passing traffic, (the badger was unconscious).We transported the badger to St. Ives Vets where he was treated for head trauma before being settled into a pen at the barn to be monitored. An adult male weighing 7kg, Bailey gradually improved as he regained his balance and became mobile over the next few days. After 10 days in care, Bailey was ready to be released and we met with his finders to watch him go free. When the carrier was opened, Bailey trotted away and climbed over a wall obviously intent on getting home, no mobility problems now!
