Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Rescued hoglet – 240g Reply To: Rescued hoglet – 240g


I’ve got a similar dilemma. Hoglet in the garden this evening, feeding well but clearly 300g or less. I rescued one a few weeks ago and released it in my garden because I have several houses, and have had hedgehogs visiting for over a year now. It may be the same one that’s returned, but it doesn’t seem large enough to survive the winter. Wondering whether to bring it in or see if it uses one of the houses overnight?
