I talked to my friend who has one, and she sent me some links and information, including one for a hedgehog rescue organization. Please message me if you see this.

  • Anon 2:51, that's my concern. She sounded pretty clear on her feelings about the poor little thing, and I would prefer him rescued and safe than who-knows-what might happen other-wise. The problem is the mil just sprang it on them with no warning which is a huge disservice to the hedgehog and in my opinion, borders on animal abuse.
