Wow. That's unbelievable.

I did some, internet investigating, and found her myspace/facebook/twitter. I'm only posting it here because I know you guys would want to reach out to her, maybe invite her to HHC.

The way in which some people are attacking her in the comments on her video, I kind of feel sorry for her. Definitely not the best way to go.

Maybe she'll listen to you guys if someone invites her to this forum.
But honestly, that's terrible :/

Sadly I'm going to say that there is probably no hope for this person, I posted my own comment last night, which wasn't mean or anything, wasn't even really directed at her, but other people who are reading the comment section, pointing out the unhealthly parts of her video, and yet she still replied to my comment with that same old "my method works fine" crap, behold...


(Me) For people who are looking to adopt. Pine bedding = unhealthy. The wheel = unhealthy. Sunseed Food = Unhealthy. Any temp below 70 = deadly. No hedgehog is alike. Pine has oils that cause breathing problems, the wheel can catch toenails and the side supports can catch their head and snap their neck. Sunseed has certain fruits and veggies that cause organ problems, and anything below 70 can cause hibernation. Thank you and goodnight.

(Her) Thanks for the concern, but my hedgehogs are doing fine by this method. Thanks and good day.

(Me) You keep saying that, yet I wasn't even talking to you. I was making a comment to help others who will adopt a hedgehog and might use this video for care information. No hedgehog is the same, I'm glad your guy is doing fine with your methods, but there are documented cases per say of hedgehogs dieing from pine, dieing from those wheels, and so forth. I'm not here to correct you, but to inform others before a hedgehog gets hurt or killed.

I saw your comment and I really liked it! At this point, after watching the video and reading the comments in disgust, I am going to go home (I am visiting my parents this weekend) and make a response video. All the poor uneducated owners out there need a REAL video so they don't get suckered into that kind of nonsense.

I may make a few care videos myself, once I locate my camera.

Also, everybody +1 Puffers' comment. <3

on this note: there's a description of the heimlich for small animals in the health forum and i thought it'd be great if someone created a video demonstration with like a toy. i can't visualize things easily.

" Mesh wheels are an extremely bad idea, because a hedgehog's toes and sometimes, the entire foot, depending on the size of the holes, can become caught.
If you are going to get a hedgehog, please do not follow the advice in this video. Instead, go to https://www.hedgehogcentral.com and click on the 'Forums' button. There are many people there, myself included, who will be more than happy to assist you and give you all the information and guidance you could ever need."

If anyone can post that for me on that video and credit it to 'RangerLedah' (without the quotes on both my name and the above) that'd be great, it won't let me post that to finish my thought on the matter.

I've been working on several Hedgehog Care Tutorials myself, though they are going a bit slowly as it takes time to get video examples of everything, mainly for the behavioral stuff.

It will be a while until I have several to post (I'll make a group of them to post together), but I'll be sure to post when I do, so you all can go give any suggestions/thumbs up/comment.
