God Save the Hedgehogs!

And never underestimate the power of a vocal minority, in this case, members of the - I'm not making this up - British Hedgehog Preservation Society. The group has convinced McDonald's to redesign its McFlurry containers because hedgehogs attempting to slurp from discarded cups were getting stuck inside and starving to death (the only aspect of this item that's not hilarious).

The actual quote from the company: "The smaller aperture of the lid has been designed to prevent hedegehogs from entering the McFlurry container in the unfortunate incident that the lid is littered."

Of course they have a website, so click here to visit (and see many amusing photos of hedgehog, as well learning how to build that hedgehog house you've always wanted).
