Hi Mealwormer

You say that all views (subject to proper scientific research) are acceptable. All views. Including my views and those of the people who have to deal with the hogs which are coming into them with metabolic bone disease.

This is not a competition about who loves hedgehogs most, or a lesson in grammar. Neither is it a criticism of people who fed mealworms, if they didn’t know about the problems they can cause. Most of us, I believe, are are here to help each other to help the hedgehogs – and to learn. That includes drawing people’s attention to the recent opinion on the dangers of dried mealworms. If you looked at the video, you will have seen that Vale Wildlife Hospital ‘advise not to feed mealworms to hedgehogs at all’.
