Bev’s talk inspired everyone who came to hear her last week. We heard about the long hours on call and the time commitment it takes to raise a rescued young hog. And Bev brought along a real live hog that she had rescued and was now ready for release. We watched Sebastian the hog grow from 150g to over 1Kg – you can see a clip below of Sebastian exploring life in the garden!
At the meeting Bev talked about what to to feed any hogs that appear in your garden – and most importantly what not to feed them:
Do feed hogs in your garden with:
Cat biscuits (fish free); meat based dog or cat food (fish free) and plenty of water
Don’t feed hogs in your garden with:
Milk; fished based pet foods; Peanuts; Meal worms; Sunflower hearts
