Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Euthanise hog without cheek and eye? Reply To: Euthanise hog without cheek and eye?


During the day one carer for hedgehogs (far away) that i sent pictures replied that the best was to kill it. Vets that i asked said the same. Vets would not euthanise it for free.

There is a person that is municipally contracted to kill animals that is ready.

My neighbour said today that the hedgehog has been there during the day, eating well and left for the forest. the neigbour got the impression that it is better. She wants to wait. So it won’t happend tonight.

I really hope I was wrong about it’s chances..

There is no carer in my municipality or county.

However it ends it’s sad
