A McFlurry of excitement among hedgehog lovers…
It seems the cute little guys stick their heads in the cup for a lick of left-over McFlurry and then can’t get out, starving to death. The Society has been badgering McDonald’s in the hedgehogs’ behalf for several years.
But what you have to love even more is that the Society finally won. Starting tomorrow, McFlurrys in the UK will be sold in hedgehog-friendly containers. McDonald’s said the design change had resulted from pressure from the Society, which prompted “significant research and design testing” to develop new packaging. Here’s the story:
