Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

We received a call from B&Q at Castlepoint this morning for a hedgehog that had been trapped under racking in their warehouse.

Tracy zipped over there and collected a juvenile male hog. He is very dehydrated, so has been given subcutaneous fluids, but appears to be in good health, if a little thin.

We will feed him up for a couple of days and then release him back to the wild if all is ok.

Thank you to the staff at @BandQ particularly Mark, for calling us and taking care of the hog until we arrived.

Trapped in a net

This hog came to us after being trapped in pond netting and was partially submerged in the pond.

It was cut out of the netting and brought home to cut away the rest of the netting. The hog was very cold, so was placed on a heat pad while I cut it free.

It was given subcutaneous fluids for shock and dehydration, and it was placed in one of the ICU’s to warm up.

There were no obvious signs of injury, so it will be released once it’s had time to recover from the shock of it’s ordeal.
