Hi all, I was tidying up other day with garage open, when I went to lock up a fairly large hedgehog was in middle of garage (about half size of rugby ball).
I went into house to get a soft brush to shoo him out but by time I got back he had moved to back of garage, I couldnt see him but heard him scrambling about.
The past couple of nights I have put some dog food and water out which has been eaten over night, It is a brick built garage to there is no way out other than garage door and i need to lock up at night because of all the tools.
Should i put a shoe box and straw out to lure him out?
As I am away a lot I dont just want to lock him in with no food.
Any ideas on best way to lure him out?
I say him, may be a she.
Thanks. Graeme
