Red River Hogs

By BarbaraR
Hi all,
Mixed feelings here, I was so charmed to
see these amazing animals at Edinburgh Zoo, but
later found out they have in the past culled the
piglets. You would have hoped they could have been
found new homes wouldn't you.
Many thanks for the nice C&C's on the baby Kudu
upload.
A few more animals to come ..
Barbara.

How sad, Barbara, I wonder what the reason for culling them was? Well captured. Carol

They are rather attractive animals and you captured them well in this nicely composed image. I guess reality is that there just aren't enough places for the piglets which is a great shame.

Here's a link to the story on past piglets fate.
Hopefully the three little ones in my shot are ok today.

Great shot of these animals.
Its ridiculous that they would cull a supposed endangered species.

Have just read the article and think it is such a pity to destroy these little creatures but think your image is delightful.
