    Urban Hedgehog!

    Was staggering home last night with a few friends from an amazing night out when I spotted a small dark shape shuffling across the road up ahead. Clearly wasn't a cat/fox or anything but was easily too small to be the badger i have seen in the area. I walked up ahead, and when I was a little...
