Hi Baldwin hedgehog
I have always wanted to see a Mum with her little train of hoglets, but never have. The most I have seen is a mum with two. They usually arrive here on their own, already independent, but still, just seeing them is a real treat. There haven’t been any new ones here since July. Still hoping.
So sorry to hear about yet another poor strimmed hog. I don’t’ think I will ever forget the day when a poor chap made his way to my garden with a terrible strimmer injury – I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and don’t know how he managed to get here. Sadly he too had to be put to sleep, but I can still ‘see’ his bright little eyes looking at me.
But, as you say, we all do our best to try to keep the hogs as safe as we can, whilst at the same time helping them to be wild and free.
