Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Hedgehog. Should I rehome? Reply To: Hedgehog. Should I rehome?


There is no gate. The only access to the back garden is via the back door. Otherwise it is enclosed. I know they may have a small tunnel dug or likewise. I think it may have climbed the adjoining garden Bush and fell in. But not sure.

I am leaving out water too. But doesn’t seem to be taking that. Just the food.

I had a hedgehog previously that I rescued from the garden and brought to a rescuer. Not sure if I should do the same for this. It seems happy enough as is.

What do yous think?

I could potentially cut a gap in thebwall with neighbours to let it out. But not sure if this would be sufficient area.
