hedgehog-friendly McDonalds?

McDonald's redesigns McFlurry containers after complaints of hedgehog deaths

The British Hedgehog Preservation Society has campaigned for years against the containers, saying hedgehogs had died while trying to eat leftover ice cream from discarded cups. Campaigners said the opening in the lid was large enough for hedgehogs to stick their heads in, but not to get them out again, and that animals not rescued by passers-by had died of starvation.

I've always read, though, that hedgehogs are extremely lactose intolerant, and can die from having dairy products.
