Hi simbo65

I think it would be very unreasonable of them not to allow someone to take a sick or injured animal for help. It may be that when the laws were made it wasn’t taken into account, I don’t know. I don’t know exactly what the actual law says, but think we have to use common sense. If I found a sick or injured hog, I would try to get help for it. Perhaps it could come under the heading of medical need. But also, if the carer was collecting it, under travelling for work purposes – although I imagine they are all very short staffed at the moment and may not be in a position to collect.
