An X-ray revealed he had broken his front leg and fractured both his rear legs...Staff at the hospital are baffled as to what happened to the tiny creature but one theory is that he fell off a wall, and failed to curl up into a ball to protect himself, or that  he was attacked by a dog...Hospital founder Les Stocker said Trifle was being treated with antibiotics and having his dressings changed every second day, and that his legs would take up to eight weeks to mend, adding - We're not sure if he's going to keep all of his legs, but we're hoping he will...He plans to keep Trifle at the hospital for about a year to ensure his recovery goes smoothly and said that - he will be a nice big fat hedgehog by the time we release him.
