Meet Marshall pig
“This little pig was no doubt headed for the dinner table, but thankfully he will now enjoy a long happy life surrounded by friends.”
Meet Marshall. He was found inside a sack lying in a ditch on the side of a busy highway on Christmas Day 2016.
Paul from Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary retrieved the old feed sack and opened it to discover little Marshall inside, along with his own urine and faeces. His front legs were gaffa-taped together, and a nose clip penetrated his snout. Another woman who had pulled over exclaimed “thank god it’s not a puppy!”
Marshall weighed around 6kg and was estimated to be about 8 weeks old. He was terrified and flinched at every touch, no matter how gentle. After lots of love and care, Marshall has learnt to trust again. He is one of the sweetest and most loving pigs at Happy Hooves. This little pig was no doubt headed for the dinner table, but thankfully he will now enjoy a long happy life surrounded by friends.
