A little badger named Lavender got lost in the forest. The tiny badger was found by the Scottish Scp. Photos of the found baby spread across the network. Lavender was smaller than the palm of her savior.
It was a girl! She weighed only 250 grams! According to the Scottish Society for the Protection of Animals, the little badger got stuck in the hole and couldn’t get out. The poor thing would have died or become a victim of predators if he had not been accidentally noticed.
The little animal was taken to the SPCA, an institution that operates animal treatment and rescue centers.
“Badgers get lost in April, when they are old enough to explore the territory. In the forests of Inverness, there are different types of not only badgers, but also other different animals. And there are often cases when the cubs of animals, having already risen to their feet, are lost in the forest,” explains an employee of the SPCA.
