Uh OH!

Have I bitten off more than I can chew????

I Googled it, and maybe your sources didn't do it quite this way (I'd rather not post details, so here' the link):

Maybe they forgot to wait 2 days? Who knows, but it doesn't sound impossible.

Why not

try the way you cook hedgehogs. Roll the hedgehog in wet clay and put into fire for 30 mins. When you take it out the clay has baked hard so you smash it off and it takes spines and skin off all in one operation. Which is great cause hedgehogs are full of fleas but not when cooked. They taste a bit like pork but I can reccommend it. And if you want to know how to kill a hedgehog, smother with mud and throw into fire. It sure is dead when it comes out.

If your hungry enough you'll eat anything even your cat. Now that's an idea.

Easy There

Of course everyone's entitled to their opinion, but I'd better tell you now that some of your forum mates are quite the catlovers ...

Are hedgehogs really enough of a problem like squirrels and groundhogs to have to do away with them? Over here for awhile they were showing up in pet stores ... like people are going to stay up at night for a nocturnal pet.

The wet clay cooking method works well though, no plucking of bird either, that's true enough.

Nice site,

this sounds like an Elmer Fudd recipe:

Woodchuck Fricassee

Clean game and remove all the fat. Cut into pieces, rub with salt and pepper and roll in flour. Cook in hot fat until brown. Add two cups of water, cover and simmer for 2 hours or until tender.
