The dog’s owner took the hoglets to the Dechanthof animal shelter, where they are now being cared for. “We’re not really trained to take care of wild animals but we’re getting some help with these ones,” a carer from Dechanthof said.
Baby hedgehogs found out of their nest in the daytime, with their eyes and ears still shut, have lost their mother and are in urgent need of help.
It is not recommended that you try and hand-feed the hoglets at home as they need specialist knowledge, time, and patience - instead take them to an animal rescue centre.
A hedgehog is known in German as der Igel.
