Shameless Mammals Horny Hedgehogs Spark Police Callout

Two hedgehogs triggered a nocturnal police operation in Germany this week after the spiky little mammals awoke neighbors with their loud, shameless mating. They went on fornicating even as a crowd gathered to watch them. In fact the attention made them even more vigorous.

The extremely sonic hedgehogs engaged in what police described as "passionate fornication."

Police called to investigate a disturbing noise in the garden of a house in Bremen, in northern Germany, were surprised to find it coming from two hedgehogs mating vigorously by a pond.

"The hedgehogs were loud and uninhibited in their actions last night. Neither the owners of the house nor the police officers called to the scene were able to put a stop to their passionate fornication," Bremen police said in a statement.

The spiky little mammals are usually shy but wouldn't stop mating even when they were caught in the glare of a police floodlight. In fact, the attention seemed to make them more amorous.

Neighbours started crowding around the garden fence to watch. "The many observers didn't deter the two hedgehogs in the slightest, in fact they intensified their activities," police said.

In the end, the officers decided to respect the animals' privacy. They switched off the floodlight and left them to their lovemaking.
