Default Quill Trimming

Bittersweet story on Buzzfeed. I link it for posterity - I know this conversation has come up before on the forums, and maybe this article will be a good reference for future newbies. In short, NO, you SHOULD NOT trim hedgehog quills!

Edit: Some more images. Thankfully Frankie is in good hands now! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...niversity.html

Trimming Quills....how awful....Very disturbing to think there are people out there capable of such cruelty.
