As long as you stay on highways and aren't dumb, you're fine. Don't go 100 mph, make sure your car's registration is up, check the lights, etc. :P

Most likely with a menagerie and a jungle in my car I will be more likely to drive at Granny speeds than excessive speeds . Of course I would have my car checked before I leave and all that but things still can happen. I guess It would be helpful to have documentation of where the destination is, like forms from the new job or a lease agreement or something just in case. My state plates would give me away as to where I'm coming from. That way if they do for some reason get to question me I will have proof that I'm not illegally trying to move into the state with my hedgie. I would not want to drive around the state either, more like know what I'm up against if for some reason I'm caught. Although if I find that it is totally illegal just to drive through the state with one though..I guess I would become more wary and consider the long way around. I will have to do more research!

If they're in cat/kitten crates, you can just say it's a cat. :P

A very tiny, angry, spiny cat.

I would like to remind everyone that HHC does not condone or endorse any illegal activity, including the transportation of hedgehogs into or through states where they are illegal. This is the same as taking marijuana from a state where it is legal and travelling through a state where it is illegal. You can be charged if caught and the illegal item, hedgehog or marijuana, can be confiscated and destroyed. Not a chance I would want to take especially with an animals life.

Hmm I suppose there would be no way for them to know if you were actually moving with the hedgie or transporting it to someone in the state illegally. Around it would be then! I like the scenic route anyhow. Would it be bad to call the DNR or someone in the state and inquire about it? Or would that just open a can of worms no one wants to look into? I don't want to make the hedgie community look bad that's for sure

So if we end up moving to western NY, you'd advocate going through NJ? I actually just looked it up. It's a five hour total trip through PA, and 11 to go through NJ.

You feel the risk of being caught is higher than the risk of travel stress?

I'm very torn. An very much dreading a many hour drive with a dog, hedgehog, and two year old.

Going through NJ would work.

For Knarla. Not as much for the carsick toddler or the lab who loses weight from stress related to long car trips.

Well, I'll just hope we don't move there. And if we do, I'll have a few months to plan. Perhaps I can spend a few nights in NYC to take the stress off of the dog and kiddo. DH will be busy with the moving van.
