Really well done!
I just did this translation swedish/english on Google. Hope it didn’t miss anything.
The hedgehog was found severely damaged by robotic lawnmowers
Warning of strong images
Jens Råberg, 47, found a severely damaged hedgehog that was hit by a robotic lawnmower. The life of the hedgehog could not be saved.
Now, Jens wants to warn about the risks with robotic lawnmowers.
It was on Wednesday that Jens Råberg, member of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation in Lindesberg outside Örebro, made a macabre find at his neighbor. A hedgehog was severely damaged in the garden, the missing right cheek, an eye and the ear hung down.
– It was really covered, even though it behaved quite normally, I understood that this must be killed, says Jens Råberg.
Most likely is a robotic lawnmower
He photographed the hedgehog and placed it in a Facebook group about hedgehogs. A person from Karlstad then offered to drive it to a game keeper after a vetrin decided to kill it.
Jens Råberg believes that it is most likely that it is a robotic lawnmower that caused the damage.
– The wound indicates that since the tissue is gone, it does not look like it would have been an animal that attacked it.
“Cut Between 8-17”
Now Jens urges owners of robot lawn mowers to be careful.
– Don’t start them when the hedgehogs arrive in the evening, instead cut between 08-17. If you want to be extra nice to them, you should have a bowl of water in the garden and a pile of cover material that serves as both food and shelter.
I think the translation is sometimes a bit strange in places, but it gives the idea.
I really hope that this article makes a difference to the hedgehogs there, Jens. Good luck with them all.
