Collapsed Badger Cub

Updated 8 days ago
Rescue - 6th June, 2022

Rescue

We feared the worst when this badger cub arrived in a completely and utterly collapsed state…

He was so shutdown that all of his veins were collapsed, making it impossible to fit an IV line. So, Plan B was to allow him to warm up in one of our incubators, whilst regularly encouraging him to lap a special glucose serum.

Amazingly, in less than 24 hours, his condition had improved enormously and he is now getting stronger, each day!

We have high hopes that he will make a full recovery and be able to join our other badger cubs, in the future.

Will you help our orphaned wildlife?

Every year, orphan season gets bigger and bigger for us. As human populations grow, so, too, does our impact on the natural world. Last year, we had over 180 different species brought to our centre, and we responded to over 20,000 (yes, twenty thousand!) wildlife emergencies. These young vulnerable wild animals are often just days old when they are brought to us, and they need our care and support for a second chance in the wild. Will you help them?
