Invasion of the hogs!

Posted by Beth in News, Wild Mammals on Tuesday 21/10/2008 23:46 UTC.

Climate change means that hedgehogs are having second broods qhogsuite late in the season. We are getting quite a few young hogs in that weigh around 120g.  At this weight a hedgehog will not survive the winter. If you see small hedgehogs out particularly during the day then give us a ring. These 2 in the picture had been disturbed by a fox and 1 of them had nasty fly strike. As you can see hedgehogs have no table manners – they walk about in their food, sit in their food and poo in their food! If you have hedgehogs living in your neighbourhood then be sure to feed them with dog or cat food (not gravy based) and leave water out for them.  You can also buy specially formulated hedgehog food manufactured by Spikes and Haiths.
