Wildlife carers near Burnham-On-Sea issue plea for food donations
fresh plea for food and supplies has been made by wildlife carers
at Secret World Wildlife Rescue near Burnham-On-Sea this week
because they have so many hungry mouths to feed.
East Huntspill charity says it has been inundated with orphans
during the unseasonably warm weather.
The rescue centre is currently looking after 20 badger cubs and
15 fox cubs who have come in with various injuries and ailments.
Charity founder Pauline Kidner told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Badger
cubs and fox cubs forage for food and with the dry spell continuing
food is once again scarce, so we are preparing ourselves for more
orphans over the next few months."
The centre is appealing to the public for help by donating wet
cat food, kitten food, tinned dog food and tinned puppy food by
popping a tin into the charitys food collection bins in
the foyer at Tesco supermarket in Burnham-On-Sea.
Helpers can also bring a tin of food along with them if they
are planning to visit Secret Worlds open weekend later this
month. It will be held on May 28, 29 and 30 between 10am and 4pm.
