Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog More autumn hoglets than usual ! Reply To: More autumn hoglets than usual !



We have a young hedgehog visit our garden over the last few nights. We have a hedgehog house with straw in it, and we have put out food and water.

The hedgehog weights about 310g, so we were wondering if he/she would be ok? Its quite cold here tonight, so would it be worth putting a blanket over the hedgehog house (leaving the entrance open) or does the hedgehog need rescuing?
