Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Dead Hedgy :( – Fireworks? Reply To: Dead Hedgy :( – Fireworks?


Noted on the dates, my apologies I skimmed your message.
However, I stand by my comments about hugging a hog. We are not their comforts – they are stressed by us, and stress can kill.
We also had heavy fireworks and not one hog was shaking in fear. In fact shaking is not a sign of fear in a hog it’s usually a sign of illness/hypothermia which I’m sure you know if you’re a carer.
