This little chap, named Lucky by his finder, was heard calling in distress this evening. The finder went into their garden to investigate the noise and found this 57g hoglet who was cold, dehydrated and very hungry.

He was brought over to us, had a quick check over and was placed into one of the ICU’s to warm up. Once warm, he readily took 2ml of formula. We removed a few ticks from him, and he is now asleep, snuggled up in a fleece pouch in his incubator.

He came to us as a juvenile aged approx 4-5 months on the evening of 23rd August 2018, after being trapped between two brick walls below ground level for five days. He appeared to have walked along or climbed over a garden wall and fallen into the 6inch gap behind, trapping him against a garage wall. In that time he had tried frantically to climb out, but at a depth of around 3ft below the garden level this was impossible. The frantic scratching to climb out resulted in him losing all the claws on his front feet and the tip of some of the toes.
