Cute Baby Badgers!

Cute Baby Badgers!


[MUSIC PLAYING] [MUSIC – JIM DEMUTH,
“BADGERS”] This is Secret World
Wildlife Rescue. And we’ve been established in
Somerset for 12 years looking after all British wildlife
casualties. My name’s Sara. And I’m the animal
care manager and the veterinary nurse. The role of my job here is
really to care for all of the animals that come in, assessing
all the patients, rearing all the babies, with a
team of eight staff that are all dedicated to getting them
all back to the wild. Let’s come and meet some
of the animals. [DOOR CREAKING] Come in. Right, they are here
somewhere. There’s something moving
under here. Hello, little face. So as you see, this is the
kitchen of Secret World where most of the babies come in to
begin with, of which this is the first of our baby badgers
which you’ll meet. And she’s called Sage. Badgers are really lovely
creatures, as you can see. They’re very, very playful and
naturally live in great big social groups. And they’re extremely funny,
playful, interact an awful lot with each other, quite
boisterous, a lot of rough and tumble. And everything she’s doing at
the moment is sort of– is completely natural behavior
that she would do to other cubs, and will continue to do
so when she’s an adult. Well, feeding time with the
badger cubs is always the best time of the day. If you’re giving them a bottle,
it’s just lovely. And it’s really rewarding
to do it. But the rest of them, you make
up this great big mash of different types of food items. And they really just roll around
in it, get completely sticky, covered in the food. And then, you just have to clear
all the mess up again. This little one is
called Minty. And he’s still having a bottle
because he’s a bit babyish, aren’t you? You want your bottle now? It’s lunchtime. [SUCKLING SOUNDS] [LAUGHS] Aw, mm, mm. As you can see, she gets
absolutely into everything. Really, really mischievous
little mad ‘un. No. [BUSY SIGNAL] Oh. [LAUGHTER] [BUSY SIGNAL] What have you done? [BUSY SIGNAL] Who are you dialing? Hello? Hello? Get off. You’re such a naughty badger. When you’ve got four badger
cubs running around the kitchen, you don’t know
who’s been feed. And if you don’t know who’s
been fed, if you go– [SLOSHING SOUND] –you can actually hear
the milk in their belly, like a coconut. When it comes down to
it, that’s the job. Everything goes back to the
wild that can go back. So you kind of always have that
in the back of your mind that you know they’re
going to go one day. And it is sad. But it’s good for
them, isn’t it? It’s good for you. [MUSIC – JIM DEMUTH,

  1. Wonderful animals, they keep a perfect balance in the ecosystem. The badger cull is totally insane, barbaric and totally unnecessary. Please everyone sign this petition:

  3. Did you know that lynxes, wolves, and bears used to live in your countryside? The Lynx became extinct in 700 AD, the Bear in 1000 AD, and the Wolf in 1743. Lynxes maybe reintroduced to the UK at about the end of this year. Then wolves probably in a couple of years.

  4. For a rehabilitation wildlife centre i would expect them to live outdoors, not in some crazy ladies living room. How do they adapt to wildlife when they are grown?

  5. Where I live, I have raised skunks, mephitidae mephitus mephitus, not part of the weasel family, as formerly thought. Those that could not be released spent their lives with me, being as spoiled as I could manage. They played with each other, and myself, and often came to bed with me.
