Animal pictures?
 
Is there an animal/pets picture thread? If there is mods please shift this image, I couldn't find one.

A baby hedgehog I found at the side of the road.
She's fine, apart from underweight, (obviously) it's almost hibernation time and she will never survive so I've taken her to a rescue place.

:)

They are supposed to be on the endangered list now aren't they?

Yes they are :(
I HATE seeing hedgehog roadkill. I hate seeing any roadkill but rabbits/cats/squirrels are fast and unpredictable-they will dart into the road, I can see how it's difficult to avoid those sometimes.
Hedgehogs, they move soooo slowly!? How the hell can you not notice one. I guess some folk just don't look where they are going.
I think I am going to write an article about this and put it on my facebook, actually. It's not THAT long until bonfire night, and I know many of them succumb to finding a 'safe' (so they think) place amidst a prepared pile of sticks :(

Another pic here of her trying to escape the shoebox I put her in to carry her home!

Hedgehog is supposed to be very nice when baked in clay. Well, that's how the gypos eat 'em, anyway.

One of the ex-battery chickens from a rehome project my friend and I did last autumn :)
More pics of that here if you want-I *think* it's a public album but I am a bit rubbish at fb.

How cruel that you denied the hedgehog freedom of its natural habitat.
How do you reconcile your veganism with this violation of this animal's rights ;).

'I don't want to be saved' is the answer to doorstep godbotherers - the hedgehog may well feel the same.

Re: Animal pictures?
 
I just couldn't leave it knowing it wouldn't survive the winter. I know I interfered with nature, but it was in my nature to help. I deal with such dilemmas all the time!

By hugging chickens :)

I hug trees when I get the chance, but I don't uproot them :D

That little dog was kept in a cage for nine weeks.
Some evil person threw her out of a car when she was tiny. We were asked to help by Hyndburn stray dogs but they didn't expect her to survive.
The vet almost put her to sleep but my wife nursed her back to health and cared for her night and day.
the reason for the cage, she had a broken pelvis and her paws were rubbed raw.
You should see her now 8 years later, running about like a good un. The home she went to thinks the world of her and brings her to see us every time they are in the area.


The other photo is one I took of a puppy my wife walked for the GDBA, one of eight she got through it's initial training and then it went to work with a visual impaired person.

There are some nasty gits around, thanks for caring.

It's nice to hear something good in this day and age
