New Years Day, and I joined a group of people in a peaceful protest against Fox hunting in the town of Stow on the Wold.
The same as Boxing Day, there were plenty of members of the public out to watch the horses and their riders parade in the town square. Hopefully some people will have taken notice of the signs and maybe think a little more about what is involved.
We hadn’t been back home for long when mum got a call out to a badger rescue. The poor young badger had been reported by a member of the public lying by the side of a bridle path.
The badger had probably spent most of the day lying in a cold puddle and was really ill. It was rushed to a vet and found to have a large abscess on its jaw. Unfortunately, despite the fantastic efforts from The Nutkin Ward the little badger didn’t pull through and sadly died.
If you have chance check out Nutkin Ward on Facebook and look at the wonderful work they do.
Oxon Badger Group are a small group of people dedicated to looking after badgers in Oxfordshire, at the moment they are fundraising to set up a badger vaccination project – the link to donate is here GoFundMe vaccination project
Thank you and Happy New Year
