Fisticuffs at dawn


Last night a new hog visited our garden and spent a couple of hours wandering around and eating. All was well until our “resident” hog turned up. There was quite a spat in the feeding box. The poor visitor tried to make his/her escape without beeing noticed but was ambushed by the resident hog and the arguments continued until the visitor finally sloped off. Has anyone else had this kind of territorial behaviour or do we have a hog which needs an asbo!

Like Carole we have a cat problem. We thougtht we had solved it by making the entrance slightly smaller. It worked for a while but last night the cat invaded the feeding box again. We are now experimenting with a tunnel entrance. Any ideas which work would be welcome!

Have any Question or Comment?

I have witnessed a number of hogs not about to share. See video ‘Not Sharing’ posted on the 6th April 2019.
Hog parents Roger and Amanda Allen have had a cat problem and overcome it with a tunnel entrance.
