Billy Idol let loose in Tatton Park

Billy Idol let loose in Tatton Park

Tatton is more than used to its celebrity visitors but one new resident has been creating quite a stir. ‘Billy Idol’ is an extremely rare ‘blonde hedgehog’ who is fast gaining a fan club amongst Tatton staff.

Found by a member of the public in Oswestry, Billy has been cared for by the RSPCA from Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre since he was a baby. He has a rare recessive gene which results in his striking cream coloured spines. Looking for a secure place to release Billy back into the wild, the RSPCA chose the Gardens at Tatton Park, where he was brought on Friday 27th March.
