Hi Godiva57

Yes, the best idea is to ring your nearest hog rescues. You can get contact details of your nearest ones by ringing 01584 890801 (as shown below left) and take their advice. I think they have volunteers out of office hours. Hopefully someone would be able to collect the hog if you don’t have a car.

There is more information here:

Hopefully you will be able to catch the hog when it comes for food and put it into a high sided box or pet carrier until you find someone who can help. If you don’t have a towel you could use torn up strips of paper which the hog could burrow in. Don’t forget to provide food and water.

Good luck – I hope all goes well.
