Thanks Nic, it’s heartbreaking when you feed them and watch them and then lose them. The story has a happier ending though. Later that same day (around lunch time) we found a small hog, roughly half the size of the dead one, scurrying around in the garden. We thought he might have been searching for his mum. Although he’s probably too small to survive at this time of year on his own he looked strong and vigorous. We put him in a box with food, water and bedding and took him to the local animal hospital where the vets gave him a quick once-over and pronounced him healthy. They have now transferred him to a wildlife rescue where he’ll be looked after and hopefully returned to us when he’s ready to be released.
