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


I have a juvenile coming to our feeding station and eating the biscuits up with gusto several times a night. He first popped up late September and since then has gained in size and looks lovely and healthy. I am a firm believer in a hands-off approach and would only intervene where I think the hedgehog needs help. So I don’t even weigh any of the hogs that visit, and prefer to trust the hedgehog knows best. He has ample food and water and so can decide if or when he wants to hibernate. I hope I am not being overly naive in this approach?
