Hi Willpar

They sometimes come out of hibernation early if they hadn’t put on enough of the sort of fat they need to survive. (Of course it could also have something to do with the strange weather this winter). If the hog looks small or narrow, it might be a good idea to weigh it and take the advice of a local hog rehabilitator. But, I imagine, it will welcome any food and water you put out for it. The worry is that Winter is far from over and there is a possible threat of snow here next week. Not sure what the hoglet here would think of that. Good luck with the one there.
