Badger rescued after being stuck 6ft down flooded drain

An RSPCA officer came to the rescue of a badger that found herself stuck at the bottom of a flooded drain.

RSPCA animal collection officer John Greaves was called to a property in Bradford after a groundsman found a badger who had fallen six foot down a 2ft-wide uncovered drain.

Mr Greaves said: “The manhole cover had been left off of the drain due to all of the rain and flooding. The groundsman spotted this poor, bedraggled badger down the drain and called us."
