Hog Help Needed

Hog Help Needed

You may have read reports from The British Hedgehog Preservation Society of many hedgehogs being found who haven't hibernated. These hedgehogs are often too small or sick to survive hibernation without help, which may involve providing additional feeding in the garden or acting as foster carers until the Spring.

Our local West Midlands Hedgehog Rescue are experiencing the same problems and would be delighted to hear from anyone who has the time and facilities to keep the creatures warm and well fed until they are fit and well enough to be released in the Spring.

If you would like to offer help, please contact Steve or Joan on 01922 419532 or e-mail stevelockley@talktalk.net.
