1 adult male hog 800g
1 adult female hog 676g
1 male adult hog 649g

All 3 were found hibernating at the back of a shed that was being cleared out, huddled together in hay that had been left under a guinea pig cage.

One is now awake, but the other 2 are still asleep. The hogs could not be left where they were, or relocated due to the location (and dogs in the garden), so it was felt best to bring them in and put them into our hibernation cages.

One of them has had it’s spines chewed by rats while it was asleep – we see this quite often now.

They should all be fine, and will be released once they are awake.

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.
