Do we really hate hedgehogs?

Two baby hedgehogs were found in our garden recently and the reaction to them was how sweet they looked. This one was curled up and apparently asleep.

Gardeners have welcomed their slug killing activities but now they are of course considered a pest because of the damage they do to native wildlife.

Hedgehogs appear to be an underated predator eating birds eggs, weta and some lizards.
