For the ones that do a runner, the best trick is to shine a torch in their face, that usually does the trick! It’s not easy to spot on the camera footage, but in the photo you can just see that nearly all of the fur on her skirt has gone and there are just a few clumps left, when I picked her up spines were falling out and her tummy and face were almost bare. She has made a full recovery and I suspect that she now has hoglets somewhere; she has gone from being very plump and caught on camera most of the night to being very slim and only picked up on video occasionally…fingers crossed! 🙂
