Baby Hedgehogs Born in the Lobby of a Five-Star Edinburgh Hotel
October 21, 2009By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Hedgehogs born at Prestonfield HotelA few years ago, Washingtonians fell in love with a nesting duck at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, dutifully watched over by the hotel concierge, prompting the chef to remove duck from his award-winning restaurant menu. Across the pond, guests of Edinburgh's five-star Prestonfield Hotel were delighted to discover that a hedgehog gave birth to three hoglets behind a plush curtain in the hotel lobby. BBC News reports that the hedgehogs will now be released into the wild after seven weeks of care by the Scottish SPCA. James Thomson, Prestonfield Hotel's owner, is quoted as saying, "We are just glad that they checked in for a little five-star luxury along the way."
