One evening, I was out searching for tasty beetles in a beautiful garden when I accidentally tumbled down a drain (you know, hedgehogs aren't the best at seeing!). I found myself stuck down there for quite a while until someone finally noticed me and reached out to Prickly Pigs Hedgehog Rescue. Thankfully, the rescue team came to my rescue! They carefully brought me back to their cosy place where they took excellent care of me until I felt better. After some time, I was all better and ready to return to the wild. They released me back into a lovely garden nearby, not far from where I was found with my adventure ending happily.

The old fashioned name for hedgehogs was Urchins.
