Wow, thank goodness you rescued that one.

I dread to think how many aren't found. :(

I am always surprised about how easily hogs manage to get themselves stuck in things like that especially when they are so tight. You would think it was easier not to get stuck. :shrug: :hedgehog:

My heart goes out to our little hedgehogs as they have so many dangers. I’m pleased you managed to save the hedgehog you found. :)
