Take care when out in the garden and look out for our prickly friends - Hedgehog Awareness Week

Rose is just one of the hedgehogs to arrive at the Shelter after being injured by a garden strimmer.

Every year hedgehogs are injured by gardening equipment such as strimmers, hedge cutters and lawn mowers.

Rose who has been at the Shelter for three weeks is healing well, although is still having treatment.

Annabelle Janes Animal Care Assistant said 'Poor Rose the hedgehog had one of the worst wounds to her head that we have seen this year at the GSPCA.'

'It is really important to check before you start using garden machinery for wildlife such as hedgehogs.'
