Too Fat To Roll

Overweight Hedgehog
A really strange problem has hit Israel, and it is apparently caused by people’s love for animals.

Ten overweight hedgehogs have been brought to the wild animal hospital at the Ramat Gan Safari. These hedgehogs ate so much on the streets of Israel that they are no longer able to curl up into a ball to fend off predators.

A lot of Israelis put cat food on the streets for the stray cats. The problem is that there’s other wildlife that eats it.

Obese hedgehogs had to be put on a strict diet and rigorous exercise regimen. Once their weight returns to normal, they will be released back into the wild.

New fat patients are joining other dieting hedgehogs who are already being treated at the same hospital.
