Check for hedgehogs

Please be aware of hedgehogs and other wildlife if you are starting to clear up your garden ready for Spring – we have already had our first strimmer casualty of the year, as have many other hedgehog rescues.

Please check the area before using strimmers or other garden machinery as there could be hedgehogs, mice, frogs, toads, newts, lizards etc in the long grass or undergrowth.

He appeared to have walked along or climbed over a garden wall and fallen into the 6inch gap behind, trapping him against a garage wall. In that time he had tried frantically to climb out, but at a depth of around 3ft below the garden level this was impossible. The frantic scratching to climb out resulted in him losing all the claws on his front feet and the tip of some of the toes.
