Thank you for your helpful replies everyone. Aw Christina, sorry to hear this has happened to you too! After reading another post here on the forum, I logged the dead hedgehog on the ‘garden wildlife health’ site and received a very nice reply from the wildlife vet who said, like you Nic, that whilst it is likely to have been predated it may also possibly have died and been scavenged later. We do go in that area daily but it’s possible we may have missed seeing it sooner. I guess we’ll never know. I’m going to continue encouraging hedgehogs to visit and hope one day we will get another visitor. I’m also going to have a go at making a feeding station which might offer some protection to any future hogs.
