Grrrr . This is unbelievable! It made me so angry when I read this, then really sad. It must be terrifying for them ! I have to try not to think any further than that because I cant bare the thought of any suffering that might ensue ! !!
If my little visitors turn up one night with marks on them , I woukd have to investigate !
Door to door raising awareness of them until finding the culprit and very politely, re educate them !
Guidance on what they CAN do to help out hedgehogs rather than “you CAN’T do that”, has always worked out beautifully for me and the other party but most of all, had a positive impact on the hedgehogs .
I couldn’t wait to go and tell my neighbours ‘what they could do’ to help ours out !
