"The grass was up to their shoulders. They were working with a special hay mower – a trimmer. And so it happened that the machine went over the hedgehogs' nest. Only after the grass was cut, we saw that there was a mother and a brood of hoglets," Semenova recalled. Murka feeds five hedgehogs and a kitten. Photo: Ekaterina Semenova
