    Been leaving scrub shoes outside during pandemic. Hog has been carrying them from outside the backdoor onto the lawn and towards the hedgehog house😂
    Anyone ever experienced anything like this?
    Any idea why the hog has taken a shine to my shoes?😳😂

    Hi Mush

    Are you certain that it’s the hog? i.e. have you actually seen the hog moving the shoes on video? Or even actually seen it yourself? Is it possible that it could be some other animal that is doing the moving of the shoes?


    Hi Nic,
    Yes I saw the hog take the shoe last night, he returned to get the other but got spooked cause of my presence.
    Very funny to witness, I’m truly baffled by it.
    The shoes are left outside the back door close to the feeding station so I’m wandering if the hog feels threatened by them being there whilst eating..
    Need to catch it on film cause it’s so funny to see.

    Hi Mush

    Yes, video would be interesting. They seem large objects for hogs to be moving around, although they seem to be quite capable of shunting other hogs around, so maybe not.


    I have just spoken to someone today who is always finding her tea towels in hedgehog nests…
