It sounds like one of your hogs could have a bad case of ringworm or mange. They usually lose fur around their face and tummy so you should be able to see any bare patches on the camera footage. I would contact a local carer so it can be treated a.s.a.p. It can take a while to treat, but one of our visitors was treated earlier this year and it cleared up quite quickly…Good luck. 🙂
