Gay Christie weighs Baldy, a hedgehog born with a genetic condition meaning it did not grow spikes and will therefore have to live the rest of its life at Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Centre, because it has no defence against predators. Resources at the Centre include an intensive care unit, a swan/seal hospital with indoor pool, a hedgehog unit, a surgery and more than 60 outdoor aviaries, enclosures and release pens. The centre has a 24hr emergency service, and is available to give advice on wildlife problems throughout the day. The centre took in 116 patients in the past fortnight.
