Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Strimmers again!

Yesterday we received yet another hedgehog with severe strimmer injuries, which included the almost complete removal of his face and the entire nose. He was sadly euthanised due to the severity of his injuries, as hedgehogs cannot find food without their noses.

Please, please! Check your gardens before using any machines such as strimmers, lawn mowers etc!

Rant!

This is what happens when you see a hedgehog out in the day, and leave it thinking it’ll be ok, and it’s still there the next day. By the time a call comes in to a rescue, it’s too bloody late.

This young hedgehog MIGHT have been saved had we been called earlier, instead it was all but dead when we arrived, and subsequently died on the way home.

IF YOU FIND A HEDGEHOG IN NEED OF HELP, PLEASE CALL US ON 07587 925 476 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
