Translated from ANP news agency in the Netherlands, 1 June 2015:
The animal ambulance in Arnhem has saved a drunken hedgehog from traffic. This reports the animal shelter in Arnhem on its Facebook page. The animal treated itself to advocaat alcoholic drink after a bottle had broken on the street. A passerby saw the hedgehog was extremely intoxicated, unable to do anything. It was also unable to roll itself into a ball in case of imminent danger. The animal ambulance was warned.
The hedgehog was taken to a shelter for animals, where it slept during its ‘high’. The animal will be released back into the wild when it will feel well again.
Meanwhile, the hedgehog has been freed.

Along roads where the roadsides have been made wide and open, fewer collisions with wild animals will happen. These are the first encouraging results of measures taken by Natuurmonumenten.
Along two roads running through forests where many wild animals live, Natuurmonumenten made the roadsides more open last year. They are the Peeskesweg in the Bergherbos and the Sandbergweg in the Leuvenumse bossen (Veluwe region). Their verges are managed by Natuurmonumenten. Motorists now have a better view and will see game earlier, so they will be less surprised when the animals come out of the woods. Conversely, it is expected that the animals are now more alert because when they leave the forest they come first into an open space.
Along the Peeskesweg between 2010 and 2014 16 roe deer were hit (no red deer and wild boar live there). Along the Sandbergweg during the last three years, 13 wild boar, 12 roe deer and 11 red deer were hit. Since the measures, there have been two boar and one roe deer fatalities. If the number of wildlife collisions will remain low, then Natuurmonumenten will encourage road authorities, such as municipalities and provinces, to wherever possible, take the same measures.
