I have to agree with Nics advice here. Anyone looking to relocate hedgehogs please take note of the guidance given by the BHPS. They represent the interests of these animals and their advice should be followed.
The only reason for not putting an animal back where it came from is if it is in extreme danger there.
I appreciate that these were released into woods, but did they tell you there were other hedgehogs living there? If there weren’t there will be a reason why!
Taking an animal out of the wild is illegal. Hedgehog carers run a fine line with this.
Putting it somewhere else because you want to educate others is also illegal.
The interests of the hedgehog is the only thing that matters
