The problem was the echidna had managed to tangle his quills in the wire.
So we tried to dig him out but he just burrowed deeper and deeper. And as we tried to lift him he just locked his big claws into the ground as anchors.
When we finally got him out the hole was quite impressive.
We put him in a box to move him somewhere safer.
Then released him in new digging spot.
