That could have been done much faster with a can of starter fluid, bbq lighter, and a catcher's mitt.

UK hedgies are adorable. Why are critters over there so goddamn twee & everything here in Canucklestan so big, bitey &/or toxicly flatulent?

Thousands of years of the English killing anything that was bitey.

Well at least we know the hedgehog wasn't going to be buggered at all....

Please tell me they named the hedgehog "Prickles" & gave him a tiny tea set after he was rescued.

csb: I was stumbling around the wilds of Scotland and found a huge wild hedgie nestled under a rock. I took a quick photo and then left it alone because it seemed to be in a deep slumber. Cute as hell

That didn't work on the Irish.

It just made them tougher and biteyer.

If I ever find myself so thoroughly lodged within a pipe that well trained expert rescuers feel that the next logical move is to attempt a slow extraction by grabbing and pulling at  me with rescue pliers from one end while prodding and scraping and encouraging movement using professional grade spatulas from the other end of my pipe... please let me die in he pipe first before the rescue plans are begun in earnest

Skunks are good to have around. They are pest control units.

Did it get in there through a tub?  Did someone check that tub for rings?
