Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Will my hogs come back Reply To: Will my hogs come back


Last year to my surprise I had 10 different Badgers visit my garden in one night from front and back. I was also a little worried in case the badgers arrived at the same time as the hogs. As I feed the badgers if and when they arrive, they should not really bother the hogs, I am sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong but I was under the impression that badgers only tend to attack hogs if they are struggling to find a food source. This was not a problem for me as I fed both but have had to block off the entrance at the back garden where the badgers were entering so hogs won’t be disturbed by the badgers now, but I will continue feeding the badgers that come round the front where I tend to leave their food outside front door. I use a hog feeding station which is quite heavy as it has a slate roof
