Hi Nic
Sad news I found the smaller one of the three hogs dead this morning, I think my cat may have got it, it was right next to the plate of food that I left out. I now feel guilty as they were fine until I left food out. Not sure if the others are injured as there are flies around them. I have just checked and the other 2 seem to be fine. Should I continue to feed them, I was thinking of leaving the food under the barbecue cover as this is where they are hiding/sleeping. The dead one was about 5 – 6 inches long what age do you think this would have been?
Where would I find the nearest rescue centre if needed or should I just take it to a vets if I find and injured one.

Thank for all the help
