Bring back the hedgehog! - WC wildlife centre

A local wildlife centre is appealing for the return of one of it's residents, a Madagascan Tenrec hedgehog, that was stolen from its reception area recently.

Monkey Town in Somerset West is appealing to whoever took the animal to return it, no questions asked.

She says she's concerned for the hedgehog's safety since it needs very specific care.

Why would someone steal this animal? They sleep during the day and they need special care. You are not allowed to keep them as a pet in the Western Cape.

Yvette Botha, Manager at Monkey Town

This is a very small animal, it fits in your hand and a is very fussy eater ... without proper care it's not going to survive.

Yvette Botha, Manager at Monkey Town
