Comet

Comet is a young adult hog who was found hibernating under a shed that was being demolished. We put him into one of our hibernation cages, where he remained asleep until this weekend.

He has a touch of ringworm on his ear, which we will treat him for, and then he will be ready for release.

Here he is tucking into his dinner.
