Another litter

A builder clearing out a garage before starting works found a nesting mother with two hoglets in. He did the right thing by scooping up mother and babies along with the nest, and placed them in a box before calling us.

The hoglets are no older than 48 hours, they are still pink and have white spikes.

They are all currently in a dark box with food and water for mum. We are hoping the stress of being disturbed and moved does not make her reject the hoglets, or worse.
