Barbed wire message

The RSPCA is asking people to be more careful with how they use barbed wire after a hedgehog was trapped in fencing for so long, half his body “died”. It is thought the animal had tried to climb through a hole in fencing in Yaxley, Cambridgeshire, where a makeshift repair using barbed wire was present and became stuck for several days before a member of the public saw it.

RSPCA animal collection officer Amy Reiter released the hedgehog and took it to a vet to be euthanised.
