    Well, if there was ever any doubt as to whether or not hedgehogs like fireworks then the answer is most definitely NO! The trail cameras have occasionally captured a frightened hog running for cover at the sound of loud bangs around bonfire night, but the New Year’s Eve/Day pyrotechnics left our prickly lodger so traumatised that he actually up sticks and moved house! Yes, our normally contented patient had moved every bit of his bedding out of the bed chamber into the dining quarters and was found cowering the following morning under a copy of the Daily Mail! Thankfully, normality seems to have been restored overnight and his bedding has remained in situ along with the daily tabloid firmly fixed to the floor.

    Why our pets and wildlife have to be subjected to the increasing use of fireworks at every opportunity is beyond me. 🙁

    I completely agree, Penny. The really annoying thing is that the actual light part of the fireworks wouldn’t be so bad and frightening for animals as the ridiculously loud bangs. I spent a short while with some ponies in a field once during a firework display. They stood transfixed watching the lights, but when the loud bangs went off they were terrified and started tearing round their field.

    I was also concerned about the amount of debris which I found in my garden after bonfire night this year.
