Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Little and Large

Tony, the larger hog, has been recovering from a severe infection, which is why he is not in a garden hutch hibernating like the rest of the ‘big boys’.

He will be moving into an outdoor hutch in the next few days to hibernate, while his smaller friend will remain inside to fatten up prior to being released back into the wild in the Spring.
