Pete Doherty hospitalised after getting stabbed by hedgehog

The Libertines rocker Pete Doherty has been hospitalised after pricking his hand on a hedgehog.
The 40-year-old indie star was forced to pull out of a radio appearance on Monday (29Apr19), with BBC Radio 5 Live host Nihal Arthanayake blaming Doherty’s absence on an injury sustained while stopping his dog attacking a hedgehog.
Sources close to the star tell WENN that he was admitted to hospital after the incident but was later discharged and is unharmed. He was later spotted partying in Shoreditch, east London.
Explaining why Doherty was missing from his show, Nihal said: “We have Kiefer Sutherland coming up – he is replacing Pete Doherty. Pete Doherty tried to rescue a hedgehog from his dog’s mouth… a spine from the hedgehog went into his hand and it is infected. He is now in hospital having the infected hedgehog spine removed from his finger.”
Doherty has previously angered his neighbours due to his dogs’ aggressive behaviour when he takes them out near his home in the English seaside town of Margate.
The Can’t Stand Me Now hitmaker was due to be on the radio to promote his latest album with his side project, Peter Doherty and The Puta Madres.
