Piglet Yoda falls off truck, gets a chance at life!  »

imageHere is your sweet story for the day! This little piglet, named Yoda by the sanctuary that adopted him, was in a truck on his way to the slaughter house when he managed to escape. Police found him and now he’s a proud resident of the Wishing Well Sanctuary in Canada!

"He just loves to crawl into people’s laps and be held. He’s a little angel," says Bronfman [Wishing Well Sanctuary founder].

Bronfman says Yoda has a few bumps and scrapes, but the vet gave him a clean bill of health last night.

She says Yoda is doing everything a little pig should be doing, and she’s even bought him a little sweater to keep him warm.

The Wishing Well Sanctuary permanently adopts animals, meaning that Yoda never has to leave the farm.

"He’s just going to live the rest of his, god willing, long life. And will be happy with the other pigs and all the attention. There is always somebody on the farm, and he will just be loved for the rest of his natural life," says Bronfman.

Omg I can’t wait until I get my own piglet! I think I will name him Spaz. Wouldn’t that be cute? “Hey, Spaz! Come get your brekkie!”*

*I was just told Spaz is a derogatory term. I had no idea! I’m very sorry to have offended people. If you read the Wikipedia entry, I think you’ll see the origin of my confusion.** Instead, I will name my piglet “Knowledge.” Knowledge Rascal.

**also interesting (to me at least) about what wiki says is that I did learn the term from the The Elastik Band’s song. Thanks for nothing, bros!
