It has been an amazing day of sharing knowledge & networking. This is the second time I’ve attended this course & I cannot recommend it enough for those who wish to learn more about caring for wild hogs. A huge thank you to the Dorset Mammal Group (hedgehog section) for organising today, & to the wonderful Caroline & Jeff for coming all the way from Gloucestershire.Hayley's Hedgehog Rescue
