Puppies and Flowers : Abandoned baby hedgehogs are too weak to hibernate



These lame baby hedgehogs are casualties of the chaotic weather.

They should be asleep for the winter – but instead they are nursing their broken bones at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

The RSPCA says its rescue centres are looking after hundreds of abandoned hedgehogs born during the exceptionally mild autumn and who are too small or weak to hibernate.
