Flintshire’s Countryside Rangers are warning visitors to the counties parks and countryside not to approach or pick up wildlife without getting advice from relevant organisations such as the RSPCA and Countryside Rangers.

A semi-tame baby badger was rescued recently after it showed no fear of dogs or humans, which Rangers say is very unusual behaviour.

It was rescued by Countryside Rangers Rachel Watson and Stephen Lewis and taken to the RSPCA after it was observed careful over a three day perios around Wepre Park.

Rangers say “While they may appear to be “cute”, they are wild animals and all wild animals should be left alone.”

Rangers are also advising people to contact them is they see baby birds on the ground and not to handle them
