Man didn't kill a hedgehog - level 1, A12

The hedgehog is a small animal. The hedgehog is active usually at night. It needs food.

Cars are a big problem for hedgehogs. Many hedgehogs are killed on roads every year. People don’t want to kill hedgehogs, but when you travel 90 km per hour, it is not easy to change your way, when you see a hedgehog on the road.

One man in Germany tried to go around a hedgehog in his Ferrari. He travelled home from work. He saw a hedgehog before his car. He went around the animal, but his car was out of control and the car hit a barrier. The man is OK but repairs to the car will be 30 000 euros. The hedgehog is OK too.
