The appalling behaviour of a set of youths has gone unpunished.
The juveniles awfully set fire to two hedgehogs in Manor Park, Glossop. Not only is this a terrible act of animal cruelty, but they boasted about it on social media which only adds to the brutal nature of this news. After being identified by members of the public, the only thing that has happened is that they have attended a voluntary interview with the police.
How this offence has not been taken seriously is beyond belief. We need to all unite together to protect these beautiful creatures who were sadly tortured and burnt alive. Hedgehogs are becoming more endangered and rely on humans to prolong their life and allow them to live peacefully.
A petition has been created to raise awareness and hopefully bring action towards this crime. Get involved with the link below.
