I didn’t manage to catch the injured hog last night – on the camera it didn’t come til 2am. It was looking worse, wincing when it put weight on its leg. I’m just going to have to do an all-nighter to catch it. Even more worrying, the camera showed one of my recent releases (recognised the markings) was ALSO limping – this time looked like a broken right foot. What’s going on? Two back leg injuries in as many weeks…. fox? trap? coincidence?
