If you are keeping watch of your local badger sett please get in contact.

The Badger Group has members in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Rutland as well as further afield.

For your own safety, do not attempt to rescue an injured badger or one in difficulty yourself, even if it is a small cub. Always seek assistance as soon as possible.

Report an Injured Badger

Always report a sighting of an injured badger to the badger group or the RSPCA so that it can be rescued and taken to be examined by a vet.
Some injuries particularly those caused by fighting are recoverable from with specialist care. Sadly particularly with road accident casualties, although the badger may appear to still be lively, once having been examined by a vet internal injuries may mean that the kindest thing to do is to put the animal to sleep to save it from further suffering.
The rescued badger in the photo below had been hiding in a gap between two walls. He had some nasty fight wounds on his rump and an infection on his tail which was likely to have been caused by a previous fight. With the correct care and medication he will have recovered.
