Herald Express - - News -

THE RSPCA has is­sued an ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion af­ter a poi­soned hedgehog was found dead in the back gar­den of a house in Totnes.

The hedgehog had blood around its mouth and nose.

The con­cerned home­owner took the hedgehog's body to a lo­cal vet where it is thought it died as a re­sult of poi­son­ing.

RSPCA in­spec­tor Beccy Wadey said: “It’s aw­ful to think this poor hedgehog en­dured such a hor­ri­ble death, and lo­cals are now very con­cerned that if the hedgehog ate some­thing that was left out on pur­pose to de­lib­er­ately harm them, that their pets such as cats would also be at risk.

“Any­one lo­cally with in­for­ma­tion about this can come for­ward, in con­fi­dence, and con­tact me on our in­spec­tor’s ap­peal line 0300 123 8018.”
