STANLEY MAKES A FULL RECOVERY!
Back in February, on a cold winter morning, we found a sad looking hedgehog near the studio with one if its legs caught in a rat trap. It was hard to tell which leg because it was just a big, frightened, prickly ball. After seeking invaluable advice from the South Devon Hedgehog Hospital, we whisked the poor little hog off to the vets for a once-over on its way to the hospital. But we were left wondering what might have happened to him - or perhaps it was her? Why was he/she out and about on a cold winter's morning? Would it have been better to release him/her and then leave him/her in peace? So many questions, but we knew the hedgehog was now in the best place.
That week, we also happened to release a new set of Stable House Studios designs by multi talented artist Annabel Callan, including this adorable hedgehog - or hug-hog!
In mid April, we were thrilled to receive a phone call from the South Devon Hedgehog Hospital, with an update on Stanley's progress: yes, a boy and now with a name too! Over the ten weeks in their care, Stanley had almost doubled in weight from 700g to 1.2kg. He had arrived at the hospital with a dislocated elbow, lungworm, ringworm and mange - now all fixed.
Apparently front leg injuries like Stanley's are often fatal so he was a lucky chappy. He would likely have been foraging for food because he was underweight. The vet told us that Lustleigh is not generally a good place to be if you are a hedgehog because there are lots of badgers, so the rat trap may even have saved him from a worse fate. Every cloud has a silver lining.
Stanley will be released into the wild this week, either in Ivybridge or Kingskerswell, both of which, we are told, are lovey places for hedgehogs to live.
