Dog attack hedgehog is now in safe hands

This female hedgehog (nicknamed 'Sonic') was found by chance in a temporary shelter in a garden where feral cats were being caught. The ladies who found her (Ally Bee and Billie Jean Austin) could see she had an injury consistent with a possible dog attack, and knew she needed help. They had heard of the work YAWS do and so got the lady to us via Stephen Cowens.

She is now being looked after by one of our local 'hog experts so is now in the best hands. She needs antibiotics and regular bathing for her wounds, worming and a bit of bulking up before hopefully being ready to be released back into the wild to do what she does best. Thank you to all involved in helping this little lady.
