Born To Be Wild Season 2 Episode 10 airs Mon 27 Sep on BBC Scotland



Of all the mammals admitted to the SSPCA’s National Wildlife Rescue centre, otters are the most difficult to rehabilitate and return to the wild.

This is because an otter cubs will often stay with its mother in the wild for as long as 18 months. If cubs are brought in as tiny orphans, the re-wilding process will take just as long. Cubs also need pals, and that’s a problem for newly-admitted orphans Chubb and Pike, who just can’t seem to get on.

It’s a different story in the small mammal unit, where Theresa is preparing to return a bumper crop of hedgehogs back to the wild. These include a mother who has given birth in captivity, but happily heads off into the bushes with her new litter in tow.

Born To Be Wild Season 2 Episode 10 airs Monday 27 September at 8.00pm on BBC Scotland.
