A local wildlife charity is having a busy time thanks to some little guests. Cuan Wildlife in Much Wenlock recently welcomed four badger cubs – a first in terms for staff member Claire in terms of sheer numbers.
The charity’s Tina Cooke explains, “Night feeds are slowly being phased out, so Claire can hopefully get more sleep! The two boys and two girls have been TB tested and results have come back negative – great news. Two of the cubs came to us after their sett was flooded out and they were found cold and lonely. All four are bonding really well, and they’ll be hand-reared for the next couple of months before spending time in our outdoor enclosure in summer. When it’s time for release, they’ll be taken to a secret location and released together as a family.”
The charity is preparing for its Summer Ball on Saturday 29 June at its site at the foot of Wenlock Edge. There will be a three-course meal and live music, along with a disco. Tickets can be purchased from the charity shop’s in Much Wenlock, or by contacting [email protected].
