US police have rescued about 300 hedgehogs and a number of other animals from their trap inside a shopping mall in the northeastern state of Michigan.
Police in the town of Romiolos moved after receiving a report from a “conscious citizen” about the presence of strange animals in one of the buildings of the town illegally.
Police said on its Facebook page that the trap contained more than 300 hedgehogs, 6 Flemish rabbits, 3 large iguanas, 2 kangaroos, peacocks, polar fox and a clip snake about 5 meters long and weighing about 90 kg.
Police said the owner of the illegal “zoo” had been identified and would face criminal charges.
