Well, we actually had no entries today, which was just as well because we were away on a micro-chipping training course.
We, as part of Dorset Mammal Group, will be micro-chipping some hedgehogs prior to release as part of a study to see if released hedgehogs come back into a rescue at a later date, among other things.
I think the hedgehogs will feel like they are being stabbed with a javelin, because the application needles are bloody huge.
Thank you to the Dorset Mammal Group for arranging the day, which was very interesting, and for providing the biscuits.
1) The hedgehog in the photograph is dead (& was used for practice).
2) You cannot microchip unless trained & deemed competent by a vet.
