Releasing hogs

We had a busy time this morning, eight hogs microchipped and checked over before going for release via three of our volunteers, Sally, Rachel and Dawn.

They will be released this evening into hog houses, but no guarantees they will stay in them, as they may well wander off into the sunset looking for their own des-res.

We are releasing the larger hogs from here so that we have empty cages ready to start calling back hogs that are out to foster, so that they may also be released in due course.

One of the hogs was the venerable, grumpy old chap, Capt. Tom, pictured above.

We wish them all well, and hope they live a happy and fulfilling life back out in the ‘wild’ where they belong.

Only 152 left to go….
