It's usually magpies you need to guard your belongings around, but one adorable hedgehog proves they can be a little light-fingered too.

One woman has shared a clip of the hedgehog rifling through her bag, having a good nose around.

A wad of money is then seen falling out, and the animal, who definitely isn't camera-shy, appears to be more interested in eating it than anything else.

Maybe it's dipped in milk...

In other animal burglary news, a badger with bravado has been caught on camera raiding a West Sussex home's fridge - after sneaking in through the cat flap.

The badger was filmed by homeowner Geoff Tayor eating eggs and Bakewell tart from his fridge.

It was the second night in a row the badger had let himself in and happily tucked into the fridge fare.

Meanwhile, in mid-June, a British tourist had her camera stolen by a cheeky monkey, who then took a selfie with it.
