It's shocking how this hedgehog was allowed to reach such a size in captivity. Hedgehogs should be weighed regularly whilst in care so it should never have got so far out of hand. I'm sure this is a rare case and most rehabilitation centres would have not allowed the hedgehog to reach such a size.

No wonder the hedgehog is refusing to leave as she is still being offered mealy worms and will be reluctant to forage for herself. That is if she is even is still able to go it alone after been fed solely by humans since her arrival at the rescue centre in 2012.
