Rescuers rushed to the aid of two baby badgers after they were attacked by a dog on Sunday 14 April. East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) attended on site and found the two badgers at the field edge.
Rescuer Kathy Martyn had to be very patient in trying to coax them out. The frightened badgers were underweight, dehydrated and suffering from skin problems too. Local residents had reported the badgers wandering around chasing people walking in the field, until a dog slipped its lead and attacked them.
The rescue took over an hour trying to catch both badgers one at a time. They were then loaded into one of WRAS's ambulances and delivered to Folly Wildlife Rescue near Tunbridge Wells to go with another badger cub rescued earlier in the week.
