Found

On Wednesday, we were called out to a hog in need of help that had been seen by a dog walker, but despite a thorough search, were unable to find him.

The next lunchtime, some good news – the hog that we were looking for had been found and brought in to us.

He was wandering around erratically and going in circles. He didn’t seem to see Dawn, the finder, or even roll up when she him picked up.

He was dehydrated, and had what look like bite marks on the left side of his face and nose, and a bald patch with 2 puncture wounds under his neck.

He had had subcut fluids, and was placed into a quiet box with food.
