    Came home from walking the dogs today and found a small hog asleep/sitting in the sun in the middle of my front garden oblivious to cars/lawn mowers/dogs running around.

    Brought it in and it wasn’t active. It’s weight is 270gr but after some food and water is desperate to get out of the box it’s in. Seems in alright state but I’m still worried about the weight especially as it’s quite cold in north east England?

    Opinions please? Let it go or try a rescue tomorrow?

    Please let us know how you get on.



    Am going to ring my local career tomorrow. I’ve rescued a couple before but those have had obvious injuries. This one seems fine now and kicking off about being contained, but 270gr seems too small for this time of the year!


    yes, it does seem small but hopefully your carer will be able to guide you with the best course of action.
    Well done on helping the little baby and I am keeping everything crossed for a good outcome.
    Keep us posted
