Thanks Nic.

I was hoping to bring him back home and release him back in to the garden but it wasn’t to be but hopefully this will be a rare occurence.

Sad also about the poor hog you found injured by a strimmer and it would be nice to think, somehow, the hogs could sense a place they would always find help like in your garden and indeed in my own.

Of course one more hazard I didn’t mention, as if hogs don’t have enough to face already, is the awful A24 traps but hopefully the authorties will come to their senses and ban these in time.

You are right they are wild animals and they need to roam I just wish others could be a bit more mindful of the hazards they are presenting to hogs and other wildlife, albeit unintentionaly, when a few small changes could help so much e.g. stop using slug pellets for one.

Keep up all the great work you do for hogs too Nic – power to the hogs indeed!
