To the right,This adult female survived her winter hibernation and woke to suffer HORRIFIC injuries from a STRIMMER. Her upper mouth and nose had been strimmed off and she was found screaming in pain in a field. This photo was taken after she was humanely euthanized.
Please please please check area's for sleeping/hibernating hedgehogs before and during strimming. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided and she has paid the cost of someone's carelessness. A tragic waste of life. 18-04-15
