And yes, you can keep hedgehogs here in England - someone on a fancy rat forum I go on has them.
I've seen a lot of 'hedgies alive and well in the wild around here - some seem totally unbothered by people, or at least they're cheeky enough to hunt for food in back gardens regardless of people being around or not.
Not that long ago we found a young one late afternoon time sitting in the middle of the road! He must've been crossing and got scared and curled up in a ball. So I gently scooped him up and took him to the other side, and he scuttled off into the undergrowth.
Love Han and her 'babies'! x
