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


Hi all,
Good news from here – we managed to get the other hoglet yesterday evening and after a night of eating and drinking in a comfy box, they’re now at the local rescue centre, who found some room for them after all. Apparently they’re a boy and girl; practically identical in size so almost certainly siblings.

Not that we’re hedgehog-obsessed or anything, but we went for a country walk at the weekend just to collect some good quality fallen leaves for the hog houses, and it looks like the adults have started nest-making with them.

Good luck daffydill in getting your hoglets into ‘protective custody’ as well!
