What could have killed our hedgehog?

    I am absolutely gutted to find that our visiting hedgehog appears to have been killed by a predator. We have found the skin and spines of a hedgehog at the bottom of our garden and I am incredibly upset. The hedgehog had been a regular summer visitor coming to our garden to eat fallen apples and plums and we sometimes put hedgehog kibble out for it too. Has anyone else had this happen? I am now wondering what could have killed it. We do not have badgers here, but there are foxes, stoats/weasels and tawny owls in the area, all of which are mentioned on this site as possible culprits. We do not think our elderly dog could have done it.


    Sorry everyone, I accidentally posted this twice and can’t seem to delete this one! The main post is in the signs and sightings section, where a couple of lovely forum members have responded 🙂


    how devastating, I first thought is that it could be a fox
