Three-legged hedgehog Pandora is proving to be quite a prickly customer.
Found in the road at Mansion Gate Drive in Chapel Allerton, Leeds, on October 30, the critter has since been rescued by the Selby Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation charity.
Staff believe she was being cared for in the area and are now keen to reunite Pandora with her owner.
The charity’s founder, Annette Pyrah, said: “You can see a vet has treated her leg in the past, and they would have recommended that she stays in an enclosed garden.
“She has been well looked after and we believe someone has been feeding her, as she is quite tame.
“Hedgehogs are in sharp decline so if we can get this one back to her home and the habitat that she’s used to, we will be doing our bit.”
She added: “It would be difficult for her to survive in the wild.”
Anyone who has information about Pandora’s owner or can give the hedgehog a good home should call Annette on 07803 180 720. For more on the charity, go to www.selbywildlife.co.uk.
