Unhappy Any hedgie owners/breeders in MA, USA?

Hello all!

I've been considering a hedgehog as a future pet for about a year now, reading up and researching in hopes of one day being owned by a hedgehog. There's only one problem: I'm from Pennsylvania, where hedgehogs are illegal. Hope is not lost, however, as I know I'm definitely moving out of the state as soon as I finish college, which is happening sooner than I'd like to think it is. While I know I still have a fair stretch of time before me, I feel like if I still want a hedgie after a year, I'll probably still want one after two.

He's another catch: I have yet to actually meet a hedgehog. But I'm headed up to Cape Cod, MA, next week for a short vacation, and I was wondering if there's anyone relatively in that area that wouldn't mind meeting up with me, talking with me a little bit about hedgie ownership (talking to a real person will tell me much more than my internet readings, I'm sure!), and maybe letting me see their hedgie?

I hope this isn't too big or crazy of a request (I know it's asking a lot, considering I'm a stranger), I'd just really like to hear first-hand from someone about hedgie ownership so I know sooner rather than later if it's indeed something I want to pursue, but where I live has made that sort of impossible around here.

Thanks!

(I do hope this is an appropriate post and that it's in the right section- I was considering putting it under 'Classifieds,' but it didn't seem to fit there, either.)

they are located in Mass.

i always use PA as an example of why exotic pet laws make little sense. i can go to the hamburg reptile show in PA and legally buy an alligator, viper, and a cobra. hedgehogs are illegal though

The reasoning I've heard most is that if hedgies were to get out into the wild they could breed and be a danger to local wildlife- sort of an invasive species deal. Makes sense, except when you remember how even our 'warm' winters are 40/50 F and snowy... Haven't seen too many 70+ F days!
