Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Autumn juvenile – intervene or not? Reply To: Autumn juvenile – intervene or not?


Hi GavinJ
I don’t want to hijack your thread, but I have the same situation here! Have my 3 regular early evening hogs (no camera so no idea of later visitors) then suddenly 2 little hoglets night before last. Greedily eating biscuits thankfully, but they are tinies, so clearly autumn juveniles.
I got ready last night with gloves and scales plus box/bedding etc but didn’t see them. I do have numbers of 3 local rescue centres at hand as they are so small I’m worried they might need care to get through the winter.
I hope you got yours to a rescue centre, that is a low weight isn’t it – did you catch the 2nd one?
Fingers crossed for me tonight, hope you to hear you were successful yourself last night 🙂
