Hi Penny,

interesting – but I can understand why your husband wasn’t keen to bring it home with you!
Do you think it was blonde through bleached effect of ageing or a ‘natural blonde’?
There is supposed to be a small population on one of our very own Channel Islands that have a recessive gene for blonde colouration – but they weren’t indigenous I understand, they were brought over as pets and either escaped (knowing hogs) or were released and inbred the colouration.
Perhaps your sighting was one of those poor little fellas?
