Government moves to extend cull could prove lethal for two celebrity badgers

Fears are growing for two hand-reared badgers who appeared on a popular BBC TV show on Saturday 17th March, following moves to extend the badger cull on to land near their release site.

Gnat and Bumblebee appeared on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s BBC2 show Hugh’s Wild West . They were filmed last year while being cared for by staff and volunteers at the Secret World Wildlife Rescue centre in East Huntspill, which rescues, rehabilitates and releases British wildlife that has been abandoned and injured.

Hugh’s Wild West and Secret World’s badger cubs

Secret World’s badger cubs get starring role on BBC 2

Meet Bumblebee and Gnat, two badger cubs we looked after last year. Gnat came to Secret World last May, weighing just over 500g, a quarter of the size he should have been. Although small for his age, he soon became friends with another badger cub Bumblebee and they had many hours of rough and tumble fun together, Gnat holding his own against his larger friend! Both were joined by another two cubs and successfully released as a family unit last last summer.
See them on Hugh’s Wild West (aired at 6pm Saturday on BBC2) with River Cottage’s Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
