On social media, there are countless animal stories that attract us, but one in particular has recently captured the attention of a large number of people. It’s about a pig in Brazil that caused a stir when something happened to him when he was being carried in a truck.
The incident occurred at 3:30 p.m. on May 23 in So José, Greater Florianópolis, just south of the BR-101 freeway. A truck driver was transporting a batch of piglets; the exact destination is unknown, but it is assumed that they were being carried to a slaughterhouse.
The street is rather busy, and a pig broke free from the unit and dropped to the sidewalk, much to the amazement of passers-by and automobiles passing by.
“I tried to stop the traffic for several minutes until bikes and vehicles came to a halt and inquired as to what was going on.” When others realized what was going on and spotted the pig, they came to my aid, and we were able to halt BR -101 roadway. “I dashed off and grabbed the pig,” Rosa Elisa said.
They transported him to So Paulo, where swine veterinarian Izabelle Joanny de Oliveira examined him and discovered that he had fractured his rear leg; thankfully, no driver had trodden on him.
He was admitted to the hospital for three weeks, during which time he allowed himself to be loved by everyone around him; he approached them without fear, they grew fond of him, and they were even permitted to feed him with supervision.
It was lovingly referred to as Baby Pig. They drove him from Santa Catarina to So Paulo, to a farm in the Serra da Cantareira, on Wednesday, June 16. The trip took 11 hours. They stopped seven times along the way to feed and hydrate it, and the animal’s welfare was prioritized at all times.
“I’ve been hauling pigs for quite some time, and I have a specific car for it.” He was so well-behaved that he was one of the few animals who fell asleep on the journey. Normally, this sort of animal does not lie down when being transported. During the drive, it was incredibly quiet. “At the pauses, I had to rouse him up so he could drink water and extend his legs,” the veterinarian stated.
Although it is unknown how long it will take for him to fully recover, the little one is optimistic because he is young and has a far better capability for recovery than an adult pig. In the meanwhile, he is kept in a separate stable and will get regular veterinarian attention.
When Baby Pig is fully recovered, he will be sent to an animal refuge in So Roque, where he will be able to live happily in a natural setting with other animals, where he will undoubtedly make many friends.
