Help: I've found a dead hedgehog!
It can be distressing to find a dead hedgehog, particularly if you think it may have come a cropper due to human activities.
Fortunately there is a project that is interested in reports of dead or injured hedgehogs, and they may be able to tell you why the animal died.
The Garden Wildlife Health Project, run by the Zoological Society of London is monitoring and cataloguing disease in wild hedgehogs across the UK.
Reporting sick or dead hedgehogs allows us to understand the threats facing the wild population.
