Letter - We need to help the hedgehogs

I would ask everyone to be careful where they site their recycling tub.

My neighbour came out the other morning to find that a hedgehog had unbelievably managed to put its head through the netting on the tub, got stuck and appeared to be dead.

They managed to cut the animal free and put it in a hedge, although it just laid there for a while when they next looked it had gone.

As these creature’s numbers are rapidly falling, we need to be doing our best to help them.
