Hi 5sandown

Absolutely, there are different considerations when releasing hogs from a necessary spell in captivity. In the normal course of events their wild food is also relevant and earthworms for instance will be tucked safely underground when it’s really cold. But with supplementary feeding we may be changing their behaviour to some extent. But a released hog’s behaviour, initially at least, may also be a bit different from a hog who has remained in the wild.
