I think they were saying people could get pricked by an infected spine but they've come across only two infected hedgehogs so far and are they really "prowling the streets"? - prowling expect they've got ASBOs too
I read a newspaper article today claiming that wildlife rescue facilities are presently overrun with young Hogs which appear to have been born very late in the season. My local one say they are trying to feed around 270 Hogs at present and are desperately short of food. They are also calling out for old newspapers as we all know the Hogs are not fussy where they leave their calling cards.
