Pigs have the mentality of a 3 year old child. Just remember when eating eating bacon, etc...really it is like eating a 3 year old child...well in my opinion anyway. Cute story though, we have had a few pigs at the shelter....very cute.

I feel so sad about the piglet,s survival its cruel and natural in this day and age, to see the outcome of such a small animal
cant believe how small she is? animal are better than humans
