Man Adopts Cuddly Molly the Rescue Pig – Makes Ham
A Canadian rescue pig shelter is shocked and heart-broken after they discovered their pig Molly was eaten by her owners.
The rescue team was quite fond of Molly.
So were her owners.
Last summer, Leon Davis cared for dozens of squirming piglets after a rescue operation in Duncan, B.C.
One of the 57 animals the Nanaimo SPCA branch manager nursed back to health was Molly, a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig who finally found her forever home last month.
But just weeks after the adoption, Davis heard the news: Molly had been butchered and eaten by her new owner after problems were reported with the little pig.
“First reaction I’d say was shock. Heartbreak. You know, all the animals that come through our care or branches we get attached to,” Davis said.
“To hear that somebody did this to an animal that we worked so hard to make sure was healthy, and tried to get into a good home, is absolutely heartbreaking.”
