Badger cub tries to suckle dog at Hastings

A badger cub only a few weeks old was picked up after trying to suckle up to a dog in a garden in Hastings on Bank Holiday Monday. The badger cub was rescued by volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) who took it into care at Eastbourne.

The badger has now been transported to Folly Wildlife Rescue for hand rearing with other baby badgers and for eventual release.
