Appeal after hedgehogs ‘set on fire and killed’ in Derbyshire

PETA Director Elisa Allen said: "It's imperative that any community faced with cruel and callous acts such as these take measures to find the culprit and bring him or her to justice.

"Animal abusers are a danger to everyone - they take their issues out on whomever is available to them, human or non-human - and must be caught before they act again."

The incident occurred at Manor Park in Glossop on August 21.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101, quoting reference number 18*399309 and the name of the officer on the case, PC Patrick Haley.
