Hedgehog horror; Mailbag letters also appear online at Mailbag.

WE were saddened to read about the dead hedgehog that was painted over by council workers in Hartlepool (Examiner, August 13).

The lack of respect shown to this unfortunate creature is upsetting. It would have been so easy to simply move it aside into a hedgerow instead of treating it so callously.

Some may take the view that it is 'only a hedgehog' but such cold-hearted lack of concern and respect is a recognisable symptom of many serious problems in society today.

For those who would like to help hedgehogs, there is advice on our website www.britishhedgehogs. or we can send free leaflets to you, simply post a sae to Hedgehog House, Dhustone, Ludlow, SY8 3PL.
