I was called out to check on a female badger that had been badly smashed in the face in a road accident. If you find a female badger, please check by squeezing quite firmly to see if you can produce milk, squeeze from the base of the surrounding nipple to the tip. If there is milk please contact your local badger group, who will do their best to find the young. In this case this badger didn't have cubs. 
Here is a link to find your local group: http://www.badger.org.uk/#!local-groups/c73lf
