Well done saving the hedgehog, Jens. So sorry to hear about the dead hedgehog. Those shafts definitely look a problem for the hogs and need to have some sort of grill put over them. Really horrid to think someone may have done that on purpose. Do you have any laws there about cruelty to animals or any animal welfare organisations?

The landlord’s response is very disappointing. I would have thought the fact that there are hedgehogs around should be considered to be a bonus, especially in a city, and something to be proud of. Is there any way you could research grills to go over the shaft tops which might be available and tell the landlords about them. Otherwise this could keep happening. It must be so frustrating for you.

Keep up the good work with the children. If the hedgehogs all disappear they will be the ones who are the losers. Getting them all on the side of the hedgehogs, seems to me, a very good thing to do.
