Abandoned hedgehogs rescued by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Friday 23rd June 2017

Ant and Dec, Debbie Bailey

Our badger vaccination coordinator Debbie Bailey rescued two abandoned young hedgehogs last week.

They were found in an allotment in Furness Vale, and are only a couple of weeks old. We're pleased to say that they're being looked after, and have increased in weight from 75g to 95g in just eight days.

One hedgehog is smaller than the other, so they've been named Ant and Dec! We hope to release them back into the wild soon, but we will keep you posted on how they progress.
