'Giant' hedgehog put on a diet

I'll have to make sure my hedgehog visitors don't get over-greedy and end up like this:

A rescued hedgehog that is four times the size of a normal animal is having her food intake restricted to help her slim down.

Huff Puff tips the scales at 2.04kg (4lb 6oz) while the average female hedgehog weighs about 600g (1.3lb).

Maureen Webb, who runs the Furze Pig Hedgehog Rescue Centre in Herefordshire, said the podgy hedgehog just kept "growing and growing".
