1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect Information., 12 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Secret Lives of Garden Wildlife (RSPB) (Paperback)
Although this book looks good and is packed with wonderful wildlife photographs, the section about Hedgehogs gives incorrect information regarding feeding, suggesting that it is ok to feed hedgehogs with bread and milk, when it is clearly understood by everyone with a keen interest in wildlife that it is certainly NOT FINE to feed bread and milk to hedgehogs as their digestion can not cope with these foods, causing serious digestion problems and even death. This is an 'old fashioned' idea that has NOT been promoted for many, many years.

Why has a modern publication, endorsed by the RSPB and with comments by the BBC, got it so wrong?

Feeding bread and milk to wild Hedgehogs as a suplement to their normal diet does no harm. The problem was people taking in hedgehogs and only feeding them on bread and milk. This is obviously not good for them and the feeding of cows milk should not be encouraged in the same way that feeding swans and ducks on white bread is potentionaly dangerous. The bread and milk is bad story got the headlines and now is believed by most to mean any amount of bread and milk is bad, when it is not.

Unfortunately one person (who happens to have written a book on the subject of hogs) has said that it is OK to give hogs bread and milk but qualifies it to say now and again, but in some hogs even once can cause severe gastric problems and all other experts say NO bread and milk.
