Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Concerned.. Reply To: Concerned..


Hi, Simbo – yes, I spoke to both BHPS & my local Wildlife Care Centre & both agree – but with the concern that this a female, they might have babies near by.. activity last night without food on offer – the previous nights, I’ve not put any out hoping she might rest up again, but apart from catching the male & her on film having a nosy & actually, motoring around a lot better even on her 3 good wheels..! No sleepovers! It still looks like she holding weight off it, so does need a look over..

Catch 22.. it doesn’t look like I’ll get her in the box in the day again any time soon – & if I catch her at night with the lure of food & a midnight stake out, I’d end up potentially distressing her keeping her from her babies overnight..

..this time of the year, the Centre likes to check them over while you wait, so you can return them to their usual habitat ( if they’re able to release them )

Box, blanket & gloves at the ready, but I’m concerned AND torn, now..!!
