I agree with both Nic and Jan’s comments above. However, I also think that perhaps if you hear of bad advice being given then it may be wise to speak to the BHPS before reporting the centre to the RSPCA.
The advice given can well be inaccurate because the wrong information was given to the centre in the first place. I cannot tell you how often I’m told one thing and find it’s something completely different
Also advice given can be relevant to an area known by the rescue centre.
Finally sometimes rescue centres have to give advice that people don’t always want to hear…..
Sometimes hogs die despite looking like they will recover and their finders get upset.
So basically yes report by all mean’s – we need regulated rescues, but take what you hear especially on social media with a huge dose of salts
