at last the weather is warm enough to start releasing the hedgehogs that we have been overwintering and thanks to the help of a great guy called Johan, 28 of them are lucky enough have gone to the beautiful village of holmbury st Mary for rehabilitation. we are very grateful to the folks there who have offered care and release sites for them. frankly we are glad to see the backs of the little stinkers ! ( only joking but to care for them properly has been really hard work for our volunteers all winter) enjoy !! ... See MoreSee Less

bleeding prefusley this was a very tricky fishing hook removal. although we had to sedate the swan surgical intervention was avoided. the swan also had another hook stuck in the joint of one of its legs which had become infected. both us, and the rspca who bought the swan in, have had the most horrendously busy, blood soaked night . 😣 ...

I wish to God that fishermen would realise the pain they inflict. Not just on the fish they catch but on the rest of wildlife. I believe in Karma. The pain you inflict in life should come back tenfold ❤️xx

Some people just couldn't care less about the consequences of their ignorant behaviour! Poor swan (donating) 😢

Thank you for all that you do 🙏🙏

Great job guys! Very busy and exhausting night by the looks of it 👍🏽

What a night - by the look of things! But amazing work 💝💝💝

Great work, well done

Speedy recovery! Xx

found by one of our supporters who was, unsurprising very distressed , these two geese appear to have been deliberately and brutally injured. from xrays we think they have been shot with a cross bow, the shooter has then pulled out the arrow or used the same one to shoot again. although these birds have been fending for themselves on a pond on tootshill road in epping for a while, they are not wild birds so it possibly due to their more trusting nature that the person responsable was able to get so close to both of them. they were found with the brown one standing over the white one. it has taken a lot if time and resources to try and save these poor victims of a despicable crime, we doubt they will make it through the night but we are doing our absolute best for them. this incident has been reported to the police. if anyone has any information please get in touch with us. ...

Essex Wildlife Hospital. Is there an update on this pair this morning please?

This is absolutely horrendous! Just when you think you've heard it all a new level of evil appears. Why on earth would you even contemplate such a nasty, vile act? These poor beautiful birds, I'm so thankfull there are people like you guys out there to help, care and love animals. Just as we all should. What an utter scum bag to have done this! Hoping for a miracle for these, how are they today?

Time has come for punishment for such crimes to become so much a fear that no person would even think of doing such a thing. I pray you can help these two. I also ask that the culprits die a ghastly death.

I hope someone finds who did it and smashes their heads in. Just for starters!!

Poor birds 😢😢 Whoever did this is a evil piece of s*** who doesn’t deserve to be on this planet breathing.

This act of cruelty needs to stop. Who in there right mind gets excitement from doing this to innocent animals. I really hope they both make it through the night and then start to make a recovery. Please keep us informed of any progress and thank you for all your efforts ❤️😢

The Contitution of 1791 in America was written before there was supermarkets or butchers..therefore only certain people needs guns or crossbows now..this is what happens when they get in the wrong hands

Omg 😔 there is just no need to be so cruel. I hate this world sometimes. I hope they survive! Xx

Hoping against the odds they both survive and recover... Thank you for trying for them

Every day some new and vile act of animal cruelty. I despair of the world if people think it's acceptable to treat animals like this. Evil cunts

Heart breaking What type of monster could do such a thing., ?? Thanks for looking after them x

Heart breaking and soul destroying that people can be so cruel and cowardly thank you to the kind person who found them and to you for trying to save them hope that they survive this horrific ordeal x

I am horrified. It breaks my heart that there are such disgusting wastes of air on this planet. I hope these beautiful animals make it through the night, and that they are forever safe. Thank you to all of those involved in helping these poor babies ❤️❤️

No words 😶 WTAF is wrong with people that do this to innocent animals? What possible 'kick' can these monsters get from inflicting pain on another living creature? The world is in a seriously bad place where humans are shooting humans. What chance do animals & wildlife have? Breaks my heart 💔 😭xx

Beyond words! 🤬🤬🤬🤬 Would love to have ten minutes with them and a baseball bat!!

Wtf is wrong with some people!!! 💔💔💔

Just disgracful.....why can't people pick on something there own size.... 😠

Please let us know how they are getting on Sue xx

This is just horrible. Maybe all the followers of SEWH should start a petition to increase the fine for maliciously injuring wildlife? I have no idea what the currrent fine is (£50 maybe?) but it’s probably out dated from before WWII. Update: It’s £5,000 but now I’m curious to know when was the last time someone was in court and received such a fine??

Heartless. I don't know how anyone could be so cruel 💔 I hope they make it through the night

Oh my lord. That is so incredibly sad. What is wrong with some people. Someone must have seen something. Let’s find the evil souls responsible. 🙁

I pray these beautiful creatures heal from the evils done to them by man. Perfectly legal to cross bow deer though. Most wont bat an eye. Oh they are over populated (nooo humans are over populated & encroach on deer habitat.) oooh but we need to feed out family. They cant afford a grocery store? Murdering any animal should be illegal but it’s not. Therein is (& will always be) the problem. And these kind of posts will always be around sadly. Allowing certain animals’ lives to matter & others not to matter, confuses psychopaths. Certainly not defending them but it just doesn’t make any sense.

FFS why would anyone do this? It makes me so angry & upset. I really hope you can save them both, as previous comments say ' Thank you for trying.'

I don't understand why or how can people be so cruel.

we have a volunteer nina who also volunteers for the local badger group. tonight she rescued the most emaciated badger we had ever seen. sadly due to it's condition, age and an old shoulder fracture we had to put her to sleep. the x-ray also revealed something else that is all too common... ...

Thank you very much to The Essex Horse and Pony Protection Society for this🐈🦊🐎🐕#AnimalCharityTuesday🐖🐮🐏🐵 It amazes us how many animal based charities are out there that people don't realise exist. Animal charities rely heavily, if not solely on the generosity of the public through donations, events and legacies. Every Tuesday we will tag an animal charity in our #AnimalCharityTuesday post in the hope that we raise a bit more awareness for the individual charities concerned. We invite other charities to do the same and set the ball rolling 😁 Please check out the work they do and maybe give them a like or a follow on Facebook. This week's tag is the South Essex Wildlife Hospital based in Orsett, Essex ... See MoreSee Less
