Nelson police saved a life yesterday - that of a disorientated hedgehog with a McFlurry container stuck on its head.
The poor spiny mammal was found drifting blindly along a Richmond Road when it was found by a patrol.
"ANOTHER LIFE SAVED," Nelson Police said on their Facebook page.
"A patrol found this guy wandering blind on the road in Richmond. Safely in the grass just before a truck came by!"
