I am also talking to a guy who rescues wildlife tomorrow as Mr Elina is going to help hand rear some orphaned fox kits in the spring so I will ask him about badgers and double check the law. :icon-wink:

I meant to post on here a few days ago, totally skipped my mind.

He is going to find the documentation on the laws and get back to me. I shall inform you when he does.

Not forgotten about you, the rescues I have been talking to seem to all contradict each other but we will get an answer in the end.
The main issue seems to be that prior to the bovine TB thing the law was different to after BUT as it has not been proved that badgers spread bovine TB then no one is too sure which law they should be going from.

Confusing. I find this bovine TB thing odd enough. So, until it's proven we're in limbo?

It's looking that way at the moment but there is 'proof' they do and 'proof' they don't. . . I think people just want an excuse to be able to shoot the badgers that ruin their gardens or at least that is how everyone at the range I go to seem to want :cry: .

icon-sad Poor little stripey-face! Is the cull going on currently? I found it odd there was announcement for a cull without definitive proof that they are even the cause of the outbreak. Sorta got me all fired up and trying to push my ability to own badgers up a little faster than I had originally planned. It sounds like any proof that they do carry Bovine TB is non-definitive at best, and simply falsified at worst. I hope they get this cleared up soon.

And thanks again Elina for working on the home front for me, it's hard to get information on what the legality of all this is, especially with the BTB scare going around.

I saw on Chasing-tail's website that she has badgers listed as "currently off display" for breeding. Maybe see if she successfully breeds them. :icon-wink:

Sorry, it's all in Russian, but here's a place that sells European Badgers! I sure hope you're still around to see this message!!!

Thanks for the info, I'm still working on getting out of KY but they seem to have lots of mustelidae. I will definitely find out more information for future planning. :D

When I saw this post & was just about to mention zoo ekzo until I saw you had, Minkenry! They have so many mustelids, I'd love a pair of their stoats
