In other news, this is such a common occurrence in the UK that they actually have a Hedgehog Rescue Organization.

That picture is so cute I almost passed out when I saw it. May have your personal contact information in case I want to sue you for causing me to incur a head injury? :)

Dude, it's not just *one* hedgehog rescue outfit. Those buggers are just so cute and helpless, we have lots. We also have (apparently) the world's busiest wildlife hospital (though perhaps not the largest) for all our useless wild creatures. Basically, we've had a few thousand years on this island and anything remotely dangerous, venomous, poisonous, icky or even really just competent has long since been extinguished. What's left are small, fluffy creatures with little self-preservation instinct.

Slight threadjack here: does anyone else just love Halloween? I think my dogs may love it even more than I do. Every time a cute little kid comes to the door, their tails go into overdrive.

I tried to think of a way to make it thread relevant by posting something like "Has anyone ever dressed as a hedgehog at Halloween?" or "Do you think hedgehogs like Halloween as much as dogs?", but let's face it, those ideas were just silly.

Also, aren't they illegal to own in the UK? Or did I read some other country's news? Maybe they saved it to have evidence during their illegal pet owner witch trials.

We had a three foot tall cyberman with a west highland terrier wearing a cybermat coat come to the door tonight. Nearly as cute as a hedgehog. Also assorted little witches, mummies, fairies etc., none of whom wanted any fruit. No mars bars, snickers, maltesers, scream eggs or milky ways left, just lots of fruit.

/we also have hedgehogs in the back garden. We give them cat food, they seem to like it. Noisy little buggers though.

How long will it take 12 people to rescue 4 hedgehogs?

Grunting and snuffling. I don't know if it's a mating call or fighting or scavenging for food, but they grunt really loudly. I can hear them from indoors, through double glazing.

Six. Answer to the question nobody thought to ask: How many Englishmen does it take to rescue a hedgehog from a crisp packet?

On the plus side, there was no union involved, or it would have taken eighteen men twelve hours of triple overtime.
