William is ‘soft released’
William hoglet has now been released into the outdoor run in my garden. He will get used to life in the outdoors and how to build a nest. When he is ready he will then be fully released into the outdoors. I checked on him this morning and he has put on 40g since he was released outdoors which is a good sign and suggests he is acclimatising well. He is huffy when I approach which is great. He has been captive whilst I care for him and he needs to learn to be wild and wary of humans again. Hopefully he will be ready for full release in the next few days.
William came to me as a tiny hoglet weighing only 109g. He is now well over 550g. What a transformation! He has some lungworm treatment with me but otherwise has done really well.
