This poor old fella came to us Friday afternoon, he was found wandering around in circles.
Upon examination, we found that both his eyes are missing, with small wounds around the area, which suggests that birds have pecked his eyes out .
He does have a respiratory infection, which could explain why he would have been out in daytime and was able to be attacked.
Hogs like this cause us ethical and moral issues – do we keep him alive to live in permanent captivity, all be it in an enclosed garden, or do we have him put to sleep.
We’ll have to sleep on this one, poor bugger.
Daisy is still struggling with her bad leg, which is badly bruised and swollen, she is still unable to weight bear on this leg – we think that she may end up losing the leg.
Other than that, the wound on her face has healed, but we’re not sure if the eye is OK or not still. She is eating and drinking well, and seems fine in all other respects.
