A BADGER cub is recovering after being found at a block of flats with injuries – thought to be from dog bites.

Staff from the South Essex Wildlife Hospital in Orsett rescued the baby badger and say he’s doing well.

A spokesman said: “It was clear from its thin and dehydrated condition something bad happened to him and through his fur multiple wounds could be seen. He is only a cub and was very traumatised but is making a very impressive recovery.”
