Sammi’s Release

http://wactransport.se/2883-dse16299-träffa-tjejer-i-långelanda.html We collected Sammi the Hedgehog from Cardiff Hedgehog Rescue today. She has been in soft release and needs to be released into the wild. She has a mild case of ringworm so looks a bit bald, this was probably exacerbated by being in captivity. She weighed in at 842 grams

Sammi the Hedgehog

This morning I built a new box for her, packed it with straw and camouflaged it. Obviously she ignored it when she was released!

This is the moment of truth when we opened the box. We pointed it straight at the box and the food we put out for her.

Release

I set the trail cam up in front of the box and food to see what happened when she finally left her cardboard box. As soon as we went in she was off. This video shows her first few moments of freedom and went straight for the food and then ignored the box. I next saw her behind the bins! She is now pottering around the garden exploring.

Good luck Sammi!
