We are often asked what to do on finding an orphaned, ill or injured hedgehog.
I have come up with the three S's
Secure- don't just leave the hedgehog where it is secure it.
Safe- Containing the hedgehog and putting it somewhere where it will experience the minimum stress
Seek help- Don't keep the hedgehog yourself or leave getting hep for a day or two days. Contact a rescue straight away.
It is very important to get help straight away. Leaving the hedgehog or delaying getting help greatly reduces the chance of recovery and can mean death for that animal.
