TUG-OF-WAR WITH A HEDGEHOG
Mrs May, our District Nurse, was driving home at 3 a.m. one night after an urgent visit to a sick patient. She was driving along a deserted country lane, when she saw a new kind of animal. She stoped her car and got out. The animal was clearly visible in the blaze of her headlights. It looked like a hedgehog with a tall white hat. It was crossing the road without paying any attention to Mrs May. When Mrs May went close to it, she noticed that there was a plastic yoghurt pot on the hedgehog's head. The poor creature had got it's head stuck in the plastic pot! Her instincts as a nurse told her she would have to rescue it , so she pulled at the pot, but the hedgehog pulling too. After a struggle she pulled the pot off the hedgehog's head. Mrs May thought the hedgehog looked rather sad, when she noticed that the pot was half full of strawberry yoghurt. She gave it back to the hedgehog. The creature seized it, put it on it's head again, a triumphantly continued it's journey across the road.
