Animals Video

A cheeky hedgehog was caught on camera pushing his friend into a garden pond.

Keen hedgehog enthusiast, Patsy Berry, 62, and her husband Dave, 63, set up CCTV in their garden a year ago to catch a glimpse of the little creatures when they ventured into the garden at night looking for food.

Both were left completely shocked when they reviewed the footage the next day to see the hedgehog sneak up behind his companion and push him head into the garden pond.

Patsy said: “We just couldn’t believe it when we saw it.

“We didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.”

The couple uploaded the video to YouTube where it had around 3,000 views.

Patsy, from Upminster, Essex, has been a member of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society since last tear after she noticed the hedgehog visiting her garden during the night.

Patsy said: “Its very rare to see two hedgehogs at the same time.

“We have never seen anything like it.

“We became a member of the society a year ago after we spotted one in the garden.

“We put food out for them most nights and we love to see them.”
