Badger and Otter - best of friends

Two wildlife orphans that have been hand-reared at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset, England.
Secret World is the only 24/7 wildlife rescue center in the south-west of England, and annually cares for over 3000 wild animals. The otter cub in the video was an orphan that was placed in a group of badger orphans whilst being hand reared. Once the hand rearing had been finished, the group were split up so that the badgers could learn how to do badger things, and the otter could learn how to do otter things! All wildlife cared for at Secret World, including the orphans, are done so so with the end goal to release them back into the wild.
