VIDEO: Man rescues baby badger from backyard soccer net

A daring barehanded badger rescue is a backyard is caught on tape.

During the video you can hear the screams of the poor badger cub who was caught in a soccer net behind a home in England.

Simon Cowell, from the Wildlife Aid Foundation, is seen gently holding the animal and trying to cut it free from the net.

The badger is not too happy with the rescue operation and tries to fight back. Then Cowell is finally able to free the animal.

The badger is then put into a cage to be taken back to the center.

The vet assumes the badger only has tiny cuts from the nets, until he discovers it's leg is broken.

So the group decides to keep the little guy there until his leg properly heals, then he will be released into the wild.
