    Default Spud the hedgehog is happy again

    To put it baldly, there are few sadder sights than a spineless hedgehog.
    But after some tender loving care at an animal sanctuary, this little fellow is bristling with good health again.
    Brought in after being spotted wandering forlornly in a garden, Spud, as he was named, was obviously suffering from a serious skin condition.

    Barely surviving: A rather miserable spud in March

    Staff at the Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital were baffled and appealed for advice through the pages of the Daily Mail in March.
    After trying lotions, potions and regular massages with baby oil, they have still not smoothed out all his skin troubles.
    But to their delight, Spud’s spines, a crucial defence against predators, are making a dramatic comeback.
    ‘He’s looking good,’ said a spokesman for the sanctuary in Buckinghamshire.
    ‘He doesn’t feel embarrassed about his state any more.’
