Badger Emergencies

Badgers are extremely powerful animals despite their sometimes ‘cuddly’ look, and they are capable of causing major injuries and serious bites.

DO NOT attempt to pick up or touch an injured badger unless you are experienced in dealing with animals such as these. Even a small cub can give a nasty bite and should not be handled.

Lots of good advice on the badgerland.co.uk site

If you find a sick or injured badger, call your nearest wildlife rescue centre straight away. Do not email or send a message, it may be days before its seen.
