Description:

Veld well foraged through, reportedly by bushpig. Farmers say they are seeing more of this type of 'damage'. Maybe they are. I'll be watching to see patterns of colonisation here. Ground was quite hard, and even rocks were displaced. Maybe I'll hire a bushpig to dig over my veggie garden...
