Companies like this supply hedgehogs to pet shops. NEVER believe a pet shop when they say they get their stock from "breeders". No reputable breeder sells to pet shops. No reputable breeder NEEDS to sell to pet shops because they always have a waiting list.

So disturbing that this could happen.
There is already a thread on this in the rescue section.

What gets me is pet stores will say they got the hedgehog or other animal from a breeder and people misinterpret that as meaning they came from a caring breeder. They don't seem to connect that every animal, even those raised in mills are from a breeder. Anyone who puts male and female together is a breeder.
