Hi thank you for the advice , we did know about releasing near their birth place but felt the need to show 50 school children these wonderful animals and educate them outweighed your advice. The children taking in that these animals do not just exist in story books or computer games but are real animals probably roaming near to them at night will stay with them for a long time. We gave them pictures to take with them about Hedgehog highways, so if only one child has a highway made the lecture did its job.
I know Hedgehogs are meant to be released near their birth place so please correct me if wrong but is it that wobbly hedgehog syndrome is genetic mostly by inbreeding so by moving to a different area hopefully will water the gene down and erase it . Its such a horrible illness having seen it twice.
