These slug pellets can kill hedgehogs. The hedgehogs do not appear to be attracted to the actual pellets but are attracted to slugs and snails who may themselves have eaten a pellet, so the hedgehog now has the poison in their system via the slug/snail. Please be aware of the wildlife in your gardens and do not use any slug pellets.
We would also remind people to act as quickly as possible if they find a sick or injured hedgehog. Please do not wait a few days to ‘see if it gets better’ – without help they will not!
