A RARE white badger was helped back into the wild after being vaccinated by charity Oxon Badgers.

The unusual animal looks not unlike a miniature polar bear.

The charity vaccinates badgers to help reduce the spread of tuberculosis.

Oxon Badgers posted a video of the badger’s release on Twitter showing its white fur with a splodge of orange.

"It seemed a shame to mark it’s beautiful fur but has to be done.”
