Please look after our wildlife

Published: 11/05/2016

Flintshire County Council’s Countryside Service would like to remind the public not to approach or pick up wildlife without consulting the appropriate organisations first. This baby badger was rescued after it showed no fear of dogs or humans, which is very unusual behaviour. It was rescued by Countryside Rangers Rachel Watson and Stephen Lewis and taken to the RSPCA after careful monitoring over 3 days around Wepre Park. While they may appear to be “cute”, they are wild animals and all wild animals should be left alone. With the nesting season upon us, Rangers are also advising people not to pick up chicks unless absolutely necessary as their parents will not be far away.
