Some of the late season litters we have hand reared, all at slightly different stages of development, but all equally as messy as each other. These hoglets will almost certainly need overwintering unless they can pile on enough weight to safely hibernate and come out healthy in the Spring.
No sooner finished one hog with fly strike, and another comes in.
This one was brought to us from Blandford, having been found trapped in plastic. The finder cut the hog free and brought it straight to us.
This poor hogs ears were packed solid with flies eggs, and it has a garrote type wound about its neck that was also covered in eggs.
