The hog seemed good to go….had been drinking still and eating (hedgehog biscuits and cat food)…but sadly, come dusk, thr hedgehog had passed away. My friend is feeling bereft, gutted, guilty, as you do when this happens as it was unexpected, and sadly not uncommon i know. I forgot to mention, various vets had declined taking in the hoggie due to being inundated, hence her decision to do for it what she could at home (which was better than nothing).
Anyway- this morning- another hoggie was found at the nursery again, same size, state of dehyration etc. After numerous calls to rescues, finally one came up trumps and offered to take it in.
On assessment, it is 5 weeks old. Some diarrohoea present but lively as a cricket. Fingers crossed for the little one.
The good thing is that the nursery staff are going to leave out food and water each night before shutting shop.
And on the issue of site release…i guess common sense has to prevail. Each case on its merits …or lack of them
