Hi Hogmeister,

Thankfully we have had quite a few hogs return over the past week and two of them have already been marked…GRRRRR!!! It becomes very confusing to those of us who take the trouble to identify them by their own markings. I know it’s not always easy, but there is usually something that makes one hog stand out from another. I have found that their legs and feet often have varying features or markings that show up on trail cams.

How would we all feel if our garden birds started turning up with artificial marks or our pet cat or dog turned up covered in white emulsion!
