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


I wonder how robomowers hurt hedgehogs and what could be done apart from timing when they work.Not knowing for sure this was caused by a mower.

Here (probably since there is no real dark in the summer) healthy hedgehogs in june can be active even around 17.00 which means mowers should not be on then.

Does hedgehogs hear mowers and curl up? Do a mower climb over a curled up hedgehog? Would just a little wider “shield” around the knife (one more cm from the knife) make them much safer?

Are there safe mowers? Are some mowers sold as being safe?
