It's now nearly a month since we released Hoggy into a safe and secluded spot.
She spent a few days enjoying the home comforts of Hog Hall but then a large rat took up residence while she was out exploring. A camera trap monitored various comings and goings, both of Hoggy and Fat-Rat, unfortunately with Fat-Rat showing increasing interest in Hog Hall. With her hibernation home under threat, Hoggy gradually lost interest and moved on to pastures new. Fat-Rat is no longer and Hog Hall stands vacant, filled with cosy bedding, waiting to welcome her home.
We hope she is safe, warm and well, that she sheltered from the recent wet spell and is now snuggly tucked away during the frosty weather. If anyone has seen her, please let us know - firstname.lastname@example.org
. She is (or was) quite distinctive with two fluorescent yellow 'high-vis' spots painted on her back for identification purposes.
