Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Moving in hibernation Reply To: Moving in hibernation


Wow that’s a difficult one but firstly, no, don’t bring them in! That’s really not recommended.

Have they hibernated already? If not then try to persuade them to move themselves now. I’ve had success doing that by providing an easy alternative of better accommodation than they currently have like a proper hog house already kitted out with some bedding and plenty more outside.

If they have hibernated already then I am at a bit of a loss because they’re going to get disturbed whatever happens and that’s not good news for a hibernating hedgepig. I’d be ringing a local hedgehog rescue for help/advice?
