Albino badger caught on camera is proving very popular online

The unusual animal was actually first captured on video two years ago.

But an albino badger gobbling up some grain in Oxford filmed by motion sensor camera is now being widely shared online by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust.

“Spotted in Oxford…not a polar bear cub but an albino badger!” the local wildlife conservation charity posted on Twitter.

“Amazing, isn’t it?” the group added.

The video of the nocturnal creature has nearly 30,000 views.

And while badgers are common in the UK, people posting online have been floored by this sighting.

It’s not the first time an oddly-hued badger has been spotted.

In fact, there have been quite a few.

Badgers can come in a variety of colours including black, brown, gold or white.

Still, seeing what looks like a mini-polar bear is pretty neat.
