Hedgehog Survives 40-Degree Wash

Lucky the hedgehogA hedgehog is recovering after surviving a spin in a 40-degree washing machine cycle.

The female creature was nicknamed Lucky by staff who have been caring for her at the Brent Lodge wildlife hospital, near Chichester, in West Sussex.

Hospital manager Penny Cooper said the hedgehog wandered into a private home and burrowed into a pile of washing that was then put into the machine.

Lucky is now being cared for by a hospital volunteer in Hampshire.

Ms Cooper said she was undergoing rehabilitation care before being given a "soft release" back into the wild.
