Molly-May P5D/K, Lily-Anna P3T/F (Lily-Anna was off sick) and Elissa-Rose NH found a hedgehog in their back garden. They brought it in, gave it some food and made it a warm bed for it in a cardboard box. The next day their dad brought it to the vet who checked it over and said it was a healthy male. Mr Lewis released the hedgehog back into a wild area near their house.

Hedgehogs are very good for your gardening as one of their favourite food is slugs.

As the numbers of hedgehogs are falling in Northern Ireland here are some web sites that will give you some ideas on how to attract hedgehogs into your gardening and how to look after them.
