Animal rescue

The number of baby animals going to the experts at Shropshire’s Cuan Wildlife rescue centre is on the rise. Summer is a busy time for staff at the centre in Much Wenlock, with a constant stream of everything from foxes and hedgehogs to every variety of local bird.

Fran Hill, manager at the centre, said they had already received about 80 more rescue animals than at this point last year. “The numbers are increasing every year,” she said. “There doesn’t seem to be a particular species that is increasing; it’s across the board.”

Fran said the increasing number of baby animals being brought in may be down to the centre’s increasing popularity on social media: “We have 10,000 followers on Facebook. I think people are more aware of animals around them, and hopefully we’ve made it very obtainable for people to call us so we can give advice.”

If people find animals, they should contact the centre on 01952 728070 for advice.
