The vets at Newquay called to report the second badger casualty had recovered enough to leave them. This badger had been found at the side of the road after a collision with a vehicle resulted in head trauma. After two days of veterinary treatment she was able to transfer to our care.

Ruby gave us some concerns as she was happy to just sleep and seemed uninterested in food but eventually she relented, tempted by a certain breakfast cereal after many other choices and offerings!

By the 19th. June, Ruby was fit for release and we retuned her to the area she had been found and released her on a badger run a few yards away. She calmly walked out of the carrier and slipped into the green undergrowth, disappearing from sight back in her own world.
