Baby Badger Saved From Freezing Temperatures

Gather 'round, badger dogs. Meet 5-day-old 'Snowdrop,' who was found abandoned in the snow in Torquay, Devon, in the UK. A homeowner heard her whimpering in the garden and rescued her from the brink of a certain cold demise. She is currently being nursed back to health at Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre at Highbridge in Somerset.
All prejudice aside, do you think she's cute? Read more, and see more pics at The Daily Mail. Also check out a great video at The Weston Mercury.

Thanks to our good friend 'Clancy' for the story tip! Enjoy Westminster today. GO DACHSHUND!

There is no question. She is clearly and extremely cute. I bet many dachshund moms would agree.

Awww... Snowdrop almost looks a bit like a baby doxie. So glad that she's in good hands! Thanks for the cute story.

What a cutie. Ali says - Woof Woof. Glad someone found her. Wonder where the Mom and the rest of them are?

Ok, the kritterkins begrudgingly admit Snowdrop is cute!
In a badger sort of way!

But when she grows up - she's fair game! lol!

Thanks for posting about this little one!

Wan't the dachshund on "That 70s Show" named Schatzi? Always thought that was such a cute name.
