It’s hedgehog awareness week 2nd – 8th May, here are 5 simple ways you can help hedgehogs – help Britain’s favourite mammal by making your garden hedgehog friendly.
Bit of a nasty one this.
We had a juvenile male hog dropped off this afternoon, following a call asking if we could take it. We were told that it was in a bad way with a head wound, dehydrated, had flies all over it and smelled.
He had been found yesterday, but not handed in until today. At this time of year, it takes approx 4 hours from flies eggs being laid until the maggots hatch. If we’d had this chap yesterday we could have saved him a lot of pain and discomfort.
