Hedgehog No.7 has now been released back into the Wildlife Area. PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB HER. She needs to get used to her surroundings before we open the hutch. She’s being fed and given water and is in a shady spot until dusk tonight when the hutch will be opened and she can leave if she’d like to. The hutch will stay there for a few days until she’s no longer using it.
She looks very well now, thanks to Kathleen’s care. Although her weight has only doubled, she looks three times as the size she was when found!
We’ve placed lots of anti litter notices and information about her over at the Wildlife Area. Please encourage your children using the skate park to respect the Wildlife Area and put litter in the bins provided. We heard reports this morning of hedgehogs with cans and cups stuck on their heads. It needs to stop, and now.
