Playing mum to two rescued baby badgers
8:10pm Tuesday 16th April 2013 in News
Two baby badgers are being cared for by wildlife rescuers after being attacked by a dog.
The cubs were spotted in a field at the northern end of Firle Road in Seaford on Sunday, April 14.
The animals had been chasing people walking in the field until a dog slipped its lead and attacked them.
East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) was called to the scene and managed to trap the cubs after an hour.
The badgers were underweight, dehydrated and suffering from skin problems.
They also had puncture wounds from a dog bite but WRAS founder Trevor Weeks said it was hoped the injuries were not too serious.
The badgers are now being cared for at a rescue centre and will be released into the wild at a future date once they have been tested for TB.
