Last week, Queen legend Brian May shared a heartbreaking photo of a badger on his official Instagram page. The wounded badger was found by two little girls, and Brian May penned a letter about their story.

Unfortunately, little Luna lost struggle for her life yesterday. Queen guitarist Brian May penned another heartbreaking letter about Luna:

“Sad news, I’m afraid. Little Luna didn’t make it. She lost her battle in the early hours of yesterday.

Anne says: ‘Luna’s injuries were just too severe. She never really had the will – she had given up in her heart and what ever we did she wouldn’t fight. The trauma of the attack and isolation from her family was all too much’.

Well, life is like this. You can’t win every battle. But we’re all very sad to lose this one. Bri.”
