Juvenile hog, a cause for concern, in my neighbours garden.

    The hog appeared at 6.00pm today, Saturday, in the middle of the lawn , on its own with no adult hog.
    Is it usual for juvenile hogs to be out so early and be on their own. The neighbour is concerned that it might come to harm and wonders if she should box it and bring it to our garden where hogs roam about or if she should leave it and let nature take its course.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks David

    Hi David

    Sorry no-one noticed your post sooner. Next time if there is a potential sick or injured hog, the best place to post is in the carers/rescuing a hedgehog section – it is more likely to be noticed sooner there.

    If the hog was sitting in the middle of the lawn and i.e. looking as if it is sunbathing, it is likely to need help. The following is a link from BHPS with information about what to do. I would contact your local carer anyway and describe the situation to them.


    Hi Nic,

    Thanks for the link.

    30 minutes after my post , following a feed of cat meat the little hog moved on of his own accord and found his way out of the garden.

    However I copied the link you sent and let my neighbour have it should she need to make contact with a local carer.

    All ended well this time.

    Regards David
