Ambulance used to give dying badger ride to vet

Some were concerned that taxpayer money was being used to transport a badger

Banbury Guardian 

BANBURY, England — An ambulance was used to transport an injured badger to a veterinary practice after NHS staff discovered it lying wounded in the road.

The Banbury Guardian launched an investigation into the incident after receiving an anonymous letter raising concerns.

The author claimed to have seen a Facebook post earlier this month by an emergency care assistant for South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) which stated: “We found an injured badger in the road about 3am on night shift the other night. I rang my vet and we took it down to her in the ambulance. She put it down (it was too far gone for saving). :(”
