Badgering Dad – Charity Raffle – CLOSED

Dad’s trying to get some shut-eye after making the clan all cosy with a fresh, new bed, but the youngest cubs just want to play around.

I was going to save raffling off these guys until nearer Christmas, but I found out yesterday that Kirklees Badger Protection Group are liable to pay the vet’s bill for Millie, a female badger who was hit by a car and left for a passer by to help.

Apparently she caused quite a stir when she ‘escaped’ from the cardboard box at the vets before she could be transferred into a secure cage.

She was very frightened and bloody – but despite her warning growls she was soon re-captured, anaesthetised, X-rayed, given pain relief, antibiotics and sutures.

Niall the on-call vet was excellent and she stayed overnight for observation. Adrian and Jan from Kirklees Badger Protection collected her early Monday morning and kept her under observation throughout the day.

Kathy at Meltham Wildlife Rescue kindly agreed to monitor her throughout the following 2 days and nights, despite having just returned from her holidays and not had a wink of sleep for 36 hours! – that’s dedication for you! Millie has since been successfully released home.

Now, I don’t know about you but I was surprised and dismayed to learn that the vets would be billing for the treatment of Millie, who is a wild animal. This is why I decided to raffle this little family now, because I want to help towards the costs involved in saving Millie.
