Animal rescuers are advising people to leave out fresh water in their gardens for wildlife to drink during the hot weather. East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) has recently been called about 12 hedgehogs which have been suffering from dehydration and emaciation due to the hot weather.
A badger has been rescued by WRAS rescuers after a territorial fight by badgers. The large male badger which weights 15kg was found curled up in the garden of a house in Peacehaven. Rescuers Trevor Weeks, Kathy Martyn and David Breden attended on site and were able to catch the badger in a side alleyway. The badger had a swelling on its head and puncture marks above his tail.
