Hi Nic
I’ll keep trying to identify them from different features, I’ve only been watching them on camera for around 6 weeks so maybe I’ll get better at it over time. I think it’s probably easier if the camera is right up close next to the feeding station or hog house but I often move the camera back a bit to cover a larger area so I can see more of their natural behaviour and mooching around so seeing distinctive areas is more difficult.

Can’t understand why anyone would think it’s ok to catch and mark a hog for their own benefit, if it’s in a rescue place for a legitimate reason fair enough but otherwise it’s just wrong
