Hi scoobysue

Yes, it can be annoying, but such a pointless thing to do! Do they seriously think people interested in hedgehogs would be interested in that nonsense?! But sadly, there are some irritating people in the world – it has always been so. I expect those posts will be removed quite soon – they usually are.

I’m glad to hear the little hog is doing well. The youngsters do sometimes decide not to hibernate and my experience, from the past, is that they do tend to grow – so that at the end of hibernation time they can be larger than their contemporaries who did hibernate. It’s great that you have been feeding the little hog. That’s very important as it is unlikely they would find sufficient natural food at this time of year. Hopefully you’re also offering water – very important, especially when it’s freezing weather.

The little hog is probably welcoming the nest to shelter in between snacking and over-day. There is still a slight chance that a hog might hibernate, even this late. There have been reports on the forum of that happening.

Good luck. I hope the little hog continues to do well.
