Hedgehog moves into St Ives rabbit's hutch and gives birth

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A hedgehog took up squatters' rights in a pet rabbit's cosy hutch and promptly gave birth to four babies.

The prickly pregnant creature moved into the hutch belonging to Rufus the rabbit in St Ives, in Cambridgeshire.

The rabbit's owner, Andrea Finbow, said the hedgehog made itself a little nest in the rabbit's straw, and both seemed "quite happy in each other's company".

The new mum has now moved her babies from the hutch, but Ms Finbow suspects she might still be visiting Rufus.

"I spent the last few years trying to make my garden more wildlife-friendly and knew that we were being visited by some hedgehogs," Ms Finbow said.
