Hi the Gallaghers

Yes, it is a problem we see talked about on the Forum every year – disappearing hogs. Many possible reasons for them missing, as mentioned above, but it may be as simple as that there is more food available in the wild. I have reduced visits here, too. The hope always is, with the females, that they are busy on hoglet duties. But, of course, it’s difficult to know for sure, when their range – for the males – can be up to 2 miles. So that there is so much of their lives which happens in other places.

All we can hope is that they all eventually return and if there are some hoglets in tow, that is a bonus.
