Hi Welsh Ann, it unbelievable isn’t it, maybe someone on the gang has something against hogs, but more likely they have a job to do in a set time. I would urge everyone to get in touch with your council /County Council and local housing assos and ask them to check before cutting grass and state they are endangered animals. I have listed 3 places of contact as in Lancashire the grass cutting is divided into 3 main bodies who cut grass. I have had a visit from my local council to discuss the issue, but sadly, a lot of the work is now being done by contractors due to cash strapped councils. I also sent a copy of hedgehog awareness to these bodies in my contacting emails. In our paper we saw someone had left some sort of sausage, doctored, in a park. It may have been targeted at hogs or even a dog, but whatever, any animal eating what they left would have caused terrible suffering. Best wishes to you all.
