Hi EmmaP I had an hog come into my garden a couple of years ago with something wrapped round his body, missed getting him the first night but got ready with a box with shredded paper in , just incase it needed rescuing. He did come back the next night and went up to him and he just went still , then we could see he had got a plastic beer can holder going round his body . We had to pull the plastic up away from his body and snip it a little bit and it came away . The poor Hog must have been so relieved, we check for any damage but looked fine . I was very apprehensive at first but would easily do it again . Hope you manage to see it again let us know good luck Sue.
