I am the biggest animal lover ever and am really fond of pigs, who get a bad rap and are really intelligent and sweet for the most part. But when they rescue a pig and send it to a pig sanctuary and declare that if they hadn't put it in the sanctuary it would have to have been euthanized, all I can think of is...when you kill a pig don't you just get bacon? I mean, not to be insensitive or anything, but of all the animals the they put in sanctuaries, it seems like pigs make the least sense. Chickens I can see, because hens can lay eggs and also once they get too old they are no good for eating really. But a pig?
Anyway, love pigs, love bacon. I'm conflicted, obviously.
The matted dog was horrendous. They shaved that fur off him and it was like they took him out of a coat of armor. Glad to see he cleaned up okay and has a good home. He sure was cute under all that matted fur.
