A little piglet thought to be only 3 weeks old was discovered in the back of a delivery lorry. The bewildered little creature was found by Tesco supermarket workers amidst the lorry’s cargo of toilet rolls. It is thought he was loaded onto the vehicle as a prank. I can’t believe how cruel some people can be. Fortunately the story had a happy ending. The little piglet had cuts and bruises to his snout but was otherwise ok. The supermarket workers who found him, wrapped him in a blanket to keep him warm.and called the RSPCA. The little piglet is now being cared for in an animal shelter until he is fit enough to be re-homed.

Or ready for the market?

I don't want to think about that Sheila. He looks so cute. It's enough to put you off bacon for life!

Jackie said...

Same thoughts as Sheila. Don't trust SPCA at all, how can you when from time to time animals land up for vivsection via them ?

Anyway hopefully he went to a farm animal rescue sanctuary.

Hope they will not eat him lately! And He could stay just a pet-pig ;).

Best wishes!
Svetlana and Kyle

Hopefully, he will find a home on a nearby farm as a pet!!!

Poor little piglet! Hope he finds a good home, for a few years, at least. He is very cute!

There was talk about this little piglet going to a sanctuary so we can only hope the RSPCA did send him there when he was recovered Jackie. I agree you can't trust them sometimes.

That would be the ideal scenario to keep him as a pet Kyle and Svetlana.

Here's hoping Janey. He'd make a great pet. He's so cute.

Me too Marion. He's lovely. I can't believe anyone could be so cruel.
