Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Let sleeping Hogs Lie Reply To: Let sleeping Hogs Lie


We put a rescue hog out towards the end of last year – as she had been treated, was a very substantial weight and we had a sheltered hog house to put her in at he bottom of the garden, hidden away. she kept appearing to the feeding station until between Christmas and New Year and then went to ground. we’ve kept refreshing the feeding station with food and water on and off for last few months and noticed the food was disappearing again over the weekend just gone.
Hedgehog poo being left in the food bowl once emptied – which we have taken as being a sign of appreciation!
suspect we may need another feeding station set up as we may have other resident hogs also now appearing for food as the stores have been completely raided for the last couple of nights!
Good to know they are back though.
Please support your local hog rescue carers – they will be seeing an influx again soon with hogs emerging and some emergency cases no doubt.
