Casualties & orphaned badgers

Badgers need specialist care. If you find a casualty or orphan, you must seek expert help.

Injured animals may be frightened and unpredictable - do not put yourself at risk!




Badgers are protected and it is an offence to deliberately harm them. Any animal which you suspect to be the victim of wildlife crime should be reported to the police - call 101
