Householders at Redruth were startled to see their cat stalking a badger cub in the garden, after calling for advice they kindly scooped the baby up in a blanket and shut it in their porch. With no local knowledge of a sett nearby in the residential area we brought the youngster into care. As its coat was full of earth it was possibly an escapee from a sett collapse but there was no injury found, he just seemed lost and hungry. It’s amazing the difference a full tummy and a long sleep can make to a baby badger – by the next day Rex was brighter and behaving much more naturally. After a few days recovery his testing for Bovine TB and parasites check found him Negative for disease and with treatment for coccidea and worming he was fit for transfer to Secret World Wildlife Rescue to be rehabilitated with his badger friends on July 4th.
