Rescuer calling for education, foster homes
Pot-bellied pigs Bonnie and Clyde have been in the care of the Whittling family in Ball Ground for the last year after they were saved from the slaughterhouse. One local rescuer said pot-bellied pigs often end up unwanted because their owners don’t realize how large they get.
If everything goes as planned, Bonnie and Clyde, a pair of pot-bellied pigs, will get a new home soon.
“About a year ago my father-in-law got them from some friends who decided they didn’t want them anymore,” said Ball Ground resident Nicholas Whittling. “They were going to kill them and take them to the processing place and he didn’t want that. His health isn’t great anymore and he can’t care for them.”
Fortunately, the Whittlings were recently contacted by a potential adoption family, but Nelson resident Victoria Bragg – potbelly pig rescuer and board member with Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center – said not all pigs are as lucky as Bonnie and Clyde.
