Are you able to get it to a wildlife rescue?

If you're able to rear it yourself (which I don't recommend), you'll need somewhere warm to keep it (a regulated temperature not just next to a radiator), critical care formula, esbilac and a very small syringe or paint brush. Baby mammals need round the clock care (hourly feeding and help defecating/urinating) so not something to take on lightly.
There's no wildlife rescue near unfortunately.
Thanks for the tips anyway.
