You make it sound so easy, Jan Marie, but that isn’t always the case. I have seen very experienced hog handlers trying to keep a hog unrolled that didn’t want to be. Some have very strong muscles and can trap your fingers if you aren’t careful. Removing ticks from that particular hog was definitely a two person job, even with two experienced hog handlers. Maybe a difference between hogs who have been overwintered who will have been used to being picked up daily to have their temporary ‘home’ cleaned out and a hog who has always been wild.
