Very well put Nic.

It’s very difficult knowing what to do for the best. We all know that large numbers of hedgehogs are accidentally killed or injured because people are unaware of their existance, so reminding people to be careful is a good thing. As for divulging their exact whereabouts is another thing entirely. Like Nic says, unfortunately there is always a minority that would wish them harm. As an example, you mention in another thread Hedgie Lover, that a rescue centre had their hedgehogs stolen from outside hutches and had to close. I wonder if they were stolen to be sold on as pets in the guise of “African pygmys”! ๐Ÿ™

In my experience, people often watch over the hedgehogs in their garden, but are reluctant to speak out about them, it’s a bit like the Knights Templar protecting the Holy Grail!

Sounds like you are doing an amazing job Hedgie Lover, keep up the good work. ๐Ÿ™‚
