Hedgehogs are not native to Idaho, but one was found at Lucky Peak. How did it get there?!!

 

Hedgehogs are found in Europe, Africa, New Zealand, and Asia, not in Idaho. Apparently someone didn't want their pet anymore and dropped it off at Lucky Peak.

 

According to KTVB, the hedgehog was traumatized because it was used to being in a cage, not out in the wilderness. Hedgehogs, not being used to this climate can easily die from being too hot or too cold.

 

The hedgehog was specifically found near Barclay Bay and has been taken to the Idaho Humane Society to be placed up for adoption.
