released August 2009
Maddison had a very bad day – first she lost her temporary Summer nest after the Council mowed the grass in The Meadows, then she suffered serious harrassment from a group of children who proceeded to play catch with her.
Thankfully a father and daughter saw what was going on and rescued Maddison, who came back to Bulwell with Clayton for some observation.
Within two days, the hog was fighting fit, amazingly showing no ill-effects at all, and was very grumpy indeed, constantly trying to dig her way out of the box she was housed in.
She was released directly into Snape Wood just over 48 hours of coming in (Marking : two white Tippex blobs on back).
