A wild piglet was seriously hurt with multiple puncture wounds from an animal attack. Even hours after her wounds were cleaned and bandaged, this young sweetheart trembled with fear. She had never been touched by a human hand before, and it scared her. She would need incredible bravery, but snuggled deep into her blanket for the feeling of the comfort she had known sleeping with her siblings against her mother’s big body. Now she was all alone. Though she ate well, she was facing a long recovery, and she may have been significantly depressed. But someone very special was waiting for her, though none of us would have guessed.
Just one week after her admission, we rescued another little piglet with similar puncture wounds–a little boy piglet full of his own noisy squeals and twirls. As we treated his wound, we told him he was in for a beautiful surprise. As soon as we had secured his bandages, we delighted in introducing him to his new friend. Though they were a few weeks different in age, pigs are such social and emotional beings that no questions were asked! They bonded within minutes. We felt we could see their healing accelerate from the sheer joy in each other’s comfort and…play! Watch these tumble-bunnies in action.
One cᴏmmented ᴏn YᴏᴜTᴜbe:”Beautiful, sweet piggies! Thank you so much for rescuing these little angels, it makes me so happy to see them healthy and safe and running around playing. So glad they had each other for comfort and friendship too, seeing them fast asleep, snuggled up together made my heart melt! “
One said:”So heartbreaking to hear them scared and squealing! Makes me think it was down to humans that they were injured and scared. Unless it was another animal and they just felt scared cos of being injured anyway. I’m so glad AAU found them and helped them recover and gave them a great environment to live in. I’m glad they’re safe now. If it was down to humans I can’t describe the level of suffering I’d like to put them through for harming and traumatising such innocent animals!”
A wᴏman wrᴏte:”Seeing them happy brought tears in my eyes, when luke was snuggling that was the hardest part for me, you can clearly see that how much he is missing his mother..But thanks to those people who clean their playground, their bed cause I know its not easy to raise little animals, it takes so much patience..I’m glad they have that patience and love for them ❤”
