Some animals are more equal than others.

Well, as much as we might want to, you can't eat people. And pigs don't try to get me to sign up for a series of collector coins.

It's a cute story and pics, but I am kind of confused, since the pig was born to be used as food, yet they show him mercy just because he was hurt?

If PETA finds out, they'll start kneecaping animals to get them wheelchairs so they won't be killed for food.

Despite an irregular spine
Leon looks and feels mighty fine!
He survived, you know,
The weight of a sow-
The hallmark of one lucky swine!

This has to be a show pig, or something. I know that if a pig was injured like that at the family farm; that pig wouldn't last the day, much less get an expensive medical procedure. A horse might, depending on the horse.


/ But, a horse is a horse, of course of course; unless, of course, the horse is the famous Mr. Ed

I think it's a great headline considering the joke it's from and the condition of the pig. And no I'm not the subby.

FTFA: Being born on a meat farm, piglet Leon Trotsky was always destined to become the filling in a bacon sandwich - and when his clumsy mum fell on him and left him with a shattered hip and broken legs, it looked as if his time was up.
But Leon was taken to Edgar's Mission, where vet Pam Ahern came up with a solution - she fashioned him a wheelchair. Now Leon's been given a new lease of life.


So, either I missed something, or the article utterly fails to explain why they decided not to make bacon sandwiches.

Thanks for the heads up about your mom.

Always be wary of a man who keeps pigs.

A girl in my neighborhood has a pot bellied pig and we saw her yesterday.  The pig must have gone from about 30 to 70lbs over the winter.  I wanted to make a bacon joke but I don't know her well enough.
 
2014-05-02 08:42:14 AM  
That's one of my favorite jokes.  I just told it the other day.

That'll do

My initial reaction: Goodness gracious, shoot the poor thing and put it out of it's misery.
My thoughtful reaction: That pig probably made that pitiful woman's life have some meaning, look at how proud she is of the idiot thing she has done. Who am I to judge her quest for a purpose in her life?

OK. I like a few of you was very confused as to WHY this BLT was not simply killed and eaten.

The linked article isn't very descriptive, but other articles had a little more info. Looks like Leon was crushed by his mother, who crushed and killed his two siblings. My assumption is the farmer took Leon to town to consult the town vet about possibly recovery so that he could get SOME of his investment back by having Leon grow larger so he could be slaughtered. When told about how much it would most likely be, the farmer PROBABLY decided to just go ahead and kill him. At some point in this adventure, some unknown third party got involved and most likely offered to pay for the piglet and sent him to Edgar's Mission.

But, you know what they say about assuming.
