Windlesham resident and animal rights campaigner Mr [Dr] May, who founded the Save Me charity in 2010, said: “We were hoping [the event] would encourage people to feel at one with their environment and to understand, appreciate and respect the wild animals we have in this country.

“We are learning to respect the lions and tigers and elephants, thank God, but we are still not appreciating the foxes and badgers and all the wonderful other creatures we have in this country, so it is an attempt to make people just look around them, be more aware and start to change the way we behave as human beings.”
