Abandoned badger cub saved from freezing

Oh, how cute! Abandoned in the snow, this five-day-old badger cub was on the brink of death. Luckily, like most babies, she could raise enough of a racket to wake the neighbors. A homeowner heard whimpering in the garden in Torquay, Devon and found the cub. Nicknamed Snowdrop, she is less than a week old and fits into the palm of a hand. She is being nursed back to health at Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre at Highbridge in Somerset. Source

Amazing... never seen a badger cub before - thank you :) Good to know it will be fine.

Poor little thing! This reminds me of the time we rescued an abandoned baby opossum back in New York. My wife dried it off with a hair dryer and took it to a nearby wildlife rehab center.
