Hedgehog Piglet is a prickle star.

Byline: COLETTE CRAMPSEY

THIS is Piglet, an adorable baby hedgehog being raised by workers at a Scots animal welfare charity.

The spikey critter was born in the care of the Scottish SPCA and will be released back into the wild in two months' time.

Staff made the decision to hand-rear Piglet after his mum ate the rest of her young.

Centre manager Colin Sneddon said: "Piglet was born in our care after his mum was admitted.

"He has to be given milk every three to four hours."

During the summer, the SSPCA are urging people to check for hedgehogs before getting out the lawnmower, strimmer or hedge-trimmer.
