Sunday 26th December 1993

We were asked to care for a badger that had been injured in a road accident.

She was very listless for more than a day, and we feared she wouldn't recover. However, we held her for a second day and she perked up a lot. After a check-over at the vet, including a worming dose, we went to release her near where she was found. Initially reluctant to leave her box, once she picked up the scent of a familiar trail, she bumbled off in the badger's typical shuffling waddle. And we all smiled.
