Hedge-hogging the nuggets
26th June 2019

By Robert Ellis



A stubborn pet hedgehog refuses to eat anything other than chicken nuggets.

Freddie, a four-year-old African pygmy hedgehog, started his obsession when his owners Ellie Carmody and Will Saunders gave him a box of McDonald’s chicken nuggets. Will buys Freddie nuggets every night, and always picks the skin off by hand before serving them, reported the Daily Mail.

Freddie is one of the stars of a Channel 4 series called Embarrassing Pets, which looks at an array of problem animals and their equally challenged owners.
