I thought that all my hogs had gone off to hibernate as i havent seen any movement on camera for 2 weeks. That was until 0545 this morning, I heard a rustling near my back door and thought it’s probably one of the neighbours cats trying to get at the hog food, but it was a hog. I have no idea where he’s come from and why he’s not tucked up in bed as it was -1 here this morning.
I checked the occupied hog house and the hog that set up camp is still in there (even though I had to take him out back in October so I could clean the house out, was worried that he would go else where but I think he’d decided to stay as there was food on tap for him- fingers crossed he makes it through to spring).
So even more food put out tonight incase he decides to come back. Hope he hibernates soon as it’s really cold.
