Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Advice please – hog in the garden at 7pm – is this ok? Reply To: Advice please – hog in the garden at 7pm – is this ok?


Update: saw the hog that has been coming for feeds at strange times, in my garden at 9:30am this morning so I phoned local rescue centre, explained the recent issues and they advised to take in to them, which I have done. They advised it was an elderly female, it wasn’t nursing so no hoglets to worry about. It had recently suffered some strimmer injuries – spines cut near its head- but it wasn’t significant, so not sure if that was cause of the strange behaviour. It has some ticks near its eye as well, so a bit of a poorly hog. But it is now being safely looked after and hopefully will make a full recovery 🦔🙏
