It is so sad that people mark hedgehogs. why can’t people enjoy them with their natural markings ! we have loads of hedgehogs coming into our garden and its so sad because we only have one which isn’t marked but its also very annoying because we are trying to identify how many we have and I haven’t been able to recognise any because I have a little note book which I log on all the hedgehogs I have seen with their markings and now I’ve realised that people have been marking them since I’ve been doing this and I think they are different ones because they have marks on but really they are the ones I’ve already logged but when I did It they didn’t have marks on!
I agree with you all in that you should recognise them with their natural markings. I just think it is so cruel that some people can’t just love something without having to add something of their own to it.
