WARNING

The safe handling of adult badgers requires experience. Inexperienced people should seek appropriate expert advice for assistance.

 

Beware of an injured badger.

 

Any injured animal will be very frightened and can be very dangerous!

 

Apparantly a comatose badger can suddenly return to conciousness and become very aggressive.

 

You can't Help an injured animal if you get injured too!

 

If you see an injured badger in a road accident, find a safe place to stop;

 

Use hazard indicators to warn other motorists.

 

Take time to assess the situation from a distance. Approach slowly talking to the badger.

 

Test its reactions with a stick (rubbing it along the head towards the nose twice)

 

Either:

 

Retrieve and secure the badger, marking the spot where it was found, or...

 

Cover with a blanket and call for assistance on the numbers above or contact your local

 

RSPCA. Give exact location, your name and contact number and stay with the badger if possible.

 

If the badger becomes agitated or attempts to escape, retreat and monitor from a safe distance.

 

If possible the badger should be taken to a vet.
