This summer we visited my grandpa in Belarus. My family had an idea to catch a wild hedgehog. Next to my grandpa's dacha or cottage, there were a lot of bushes and a lot of hedgehogs at night. We went outside and I saw something in the bushes. It was a hedgehog! It was a small tailed, spiky animal with a long nose. We put it in my dad's hat and brought it back to my grandpa's. We gave it milk then let it go. I was sad, but I was happy that it went home. This is Sophia Bradley from Sonoran Science Academy for Bear Essential News.
