Homeowner digs up garden to rescue trapped hedgehog

Sometimes, rescue calls are a lot harder than we first expected them to be. We were recently called to a local garden where a hedgehog had fallen down a hole and couldn’t get out. Little did we know how stuck he was!

After falling into the hole, the confused hedgehog had tried to tunnel his way out, but quickly hit the buildings foundations. With his spines stopping him from going backwards there was no way out.

Simon had to chisel his way through the paving above to release the hedgehog from his muddy prison. Luckily, though, he was not injured and could be released straight back to the wild 🙂
