This is not the first time hedgehogs have been in the news for doing silly things. What frustrates me is that papers like the metro have national coverage and the ability to spread the word on the current hedgehog decline in the UK. Fair enough to use cute pictures of hedgehogs to draw people in but why not mention that hedgehogs are in trouble? I guess they think it’s not what the public want to hear about, which in itself is worrying.
Cats, dogs and even chickens – plenty of animals have invaded football pitches over the years, but few have caused as much chaos as this hedgehog. Yep. The prickly character burst onto the pitch during the Red Insure Cup clash between the mighty Hitchin Town and fellow non-league outfit Arlesey Town last night.
