Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Autumn Juvenile Advice – Hugh Warwick Reply To: Autumn Juvenile Advice – Hugh Warwick


A good link Penny enjoyed reading it. What it says to me is that even more people now are aware of the hedgehogs plight and want to help. Which is a good thing, as they need all the help they can get.
But also people Need to be more aware of their actions in removing a hedgehog from the wild. Carers are probably now getting inundated with young hogs that are probably well and don’t need caring for. Probably because it is small and thinking it cant care for itself. They the hogs have been around plenty long enough to know how to care for themselves. The healthy ones that is.
Supplying food and water by us humans are probably in the main, all they need.

I have had young hedgehogs that I have fed and watered through winter without any problems. They have a nice cozy nest somewhere and just came out for food. They are a lot more robust than people think.
