12 January 2023, Saxony-Anhalt, Güsten: Christine Primas lifts a small hedgehog onto a table in her hedgehog sanctuary in Güsten. Actually, the wild animal should currently be hibernating and reducing its fat reserves. Because of the mild temperatures, many hedgehogs are waking up prematurely this year. Normally, the animals go into hibernation mode at the beginning of December and then sleep through until April.
