On an especially sweaty summer day this past July, a baby pig tumbled off a transport truck on the 401. Bloodied and bruised from her fall, confused by the loud noises of the highway, she ran across two lanes of traffic and hid herself in the bushes on the shoulder of the road.
Thankfully, a good Samaritan named Rob saw the scared piglet and pulled over to bring her to safety. He rushed her to a local vet for emergency treatment. She had a severe case of road rash and had also ripped out one of her rear toenails. Although Rob and his family instantly fell in love with the sweet baby pig, they knew she needed a special home where she would get all the right piggy love and care she deserves.
After a few phone calls, the darling baby pig arrived at Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary just outside of Stratford. Now she has four other pig friends to hang out with (Pearl is her best friend at the moment), as well as goats, donkeys, cows, sheep and a bunch of chatty chickens. Instead of heading to the slaughterhouse after only 6 months, she now has a forever home for the next 10-15 years of her life. But in order to get settled into her new life at Cedar Row, this baby pig needs a proper name.
Members of the public are being asked to help name the wee one. Any ideas? She is quite the outgoing lady, very friendly and loves belly rubs. What should this little girl be called?Tags: contest, new animals, pig
