Alan the Hoglet

This is a short video of Alan the hoglet who came to us in the autumn of 2011 weighing less than 100 grams. He was close to death, extremly cold and covered in fly eggs, maggots and ticks. It took 2 hours for Sophie at our vets to carefully pick them off. After three days of hand feeding every three hours he started to show signs of improvment. He spent a further couple of weeks at HQ then went to stay with Alan our carer (who he was named after). In late October he was released into a private woods weighing a huge 900 grams.

I hope you enjoy.
