Road Traffic Accident: Badger

Road Traffic Accident: Badger

On Friday 16th October, the RSPCA brought to us a badger that had been involved in a road traffic accident. The badger was in a critical state, very weak and was unable to stand. We treated her with round-the-clock care, fluids and pain relief

Rather miraculously, after a couple of days she began to lift her head. Slowly from this stage onwards, she started to use her feet and although at first she would only be up for a couple of seconds before collapsing back down again, she eventually regained full strength. She began eating again, transitioning from liquid food back onto solids and has now moved into one of our outdoor enclosures ready for release. She will be released back to the area that she was found so that she can return to her clan.

If you would like to contribute towards the life-saving care that we provide at the Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital, please follow this link:

Thank you for your continued support.
