Save an underweight hedgehog in winter – if it’s below 600g

Make sure you keep an eye out for any underweight hedgehogs in your garden or surrounding areas, during winter (Approx Mid December – February).
Once the weather becomes cold enough, hedgehogs will begin to hibernate and any that are under 600g are unlikely to survive the duration.

As a rough guide, if you see a hedgehog out in the day, that’s smaller than two tennis balls placed side by side, it’s worth weighing it to check. If below 600g, please, give your local wildlife rescue a call for advice.

Tip: Be sure to use thick gloves or oven mitts when when handling the hog, so you don’t get spiked!
