    we have had regular hogs male and female for months in our feeding station and hedgehog house.
    but 2 weeks ago the male all of a sudden stopped coming and then two nights ago the female has stopped coming we are worried about them. any one had the same experience?

    Hi Spikey999

    Don’t worry, it’s that time of year again, when the hogs disappear to hibernate. Some disappear a bit soooner than others, so you might hear that there are still some around in some places, but that might just be down to the local conditions. Hopefully the hogs will return safe and well next Spring.

    Thanks, Spikey999. I’m happy to help. I know what a worry hedgehogs can sometimes be – especially at this time of year. Fingers crossed for them all to have a successful hibernation.
