Thanks for the advice. For whatever reason, my colleague won’t boarder up the enclosure, I will ask her again but it’s difficult. She’s not feeding her dogs in the enclosure, but sadly the hogs keep entering. The dog is barking all night and has attacked hogs before. I will see if the hog turns up again tonight. Sadly there isn’t a Rescue in our area anymore. I used to volunteer for one but it shut down. The vets are pretty good with wildlife and I’ve taken hogs to them before. My garden is hedgehog friendly and I have a feeder and hog house etc but it’s 11 miles away. My colleague is convinced that it’s the same hog (I’ve told her that it probably isn’t) so if another one turns up she might consider blocking up the enclosure more. I can ask her about neighbours etc but it’s hard because I’m relying on her etc. So I thought it might be better to take it home. But I know that’s not ideal.
