Wildlife carers near Burnham-On-Sea issue plea for food donations

A 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.

The 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 "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 charity’s 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 World’s open weekend later this month. It will be held on May 28, 29 and 30 between 10am and 4pm.
