Swimming Pools:

Swimming pools and paddling pools can become watery graves for hedgehogs if they cannot egress. these  can be a big problem, particularly pre-formed ones with straight slippery sides that make it impossible for Grace to climb out. Grace can swim, actually, pretty well, but she can't tread water indefinitely. If there is nothing for her to climb onto in order to gain exit from a pond she will eventually tire and drown. Please provide a ramp for safe exit and if you have a safety cover please use it.Please provide her with some form of ramp such as a plank, brick steps or chicken wire ladders to enable her to climb out.  If you are concerned please call us and we can give advice. If a hedgehog falls into the pool please refer immediately to a vet or wildlife rescue, as some of the chemicals used in the water can be toxic
