Hi Celeste

Really sad to hear about the poor hogs and yes, you’re right – the hog holes are so important. Apart from anything else they provide hogs with more habitat without having to cross roads so much – which may have been the cause.

Another really important thing is if everyone leaves water available in their gardens, even if they don’t want to feed the hogs. In dry spells, the hogs may be able to find some food, but maybe not find water so easily.

Numbers of hogs visiting do fluctuate from time to time for various reasons, not all for sad reasons. We just have to hope that the majority of hogs manage to stay out of danger.

Keep up the good work with those still visiting.
