Lucy has a very sad story. In April she was dumped on a 30 acre private island along with about a dozen other little pigs. These pigs were left to fend for themselves and weren't provided with food or shelter. By the time authorities were alerted, there were only five pigs left. When the owner was told to provide food and shelter to the remained pigs, he shot them. Lucy was the only survivor but was shot in both hind legs. She evaded capture for two weeks and was finally lured into a cage and brought to the sanctuary. Many vet visits and x-rays later, Lucy's shattered bones have finally fused and she gets around very well. Amputation had looked like the only option at one point so we are so pleased to see how well Lucy is doing on all legs. When Lucy arrived at the sanctuary in early August, she looked extremely pregnant. The vet x-rayed her to check and there was no evidence of any babies so we were shocked months later on Nov 11th when Lucy gave birth to three piglets. Lucy must have been mated just before her family was shot. Lucy is such a loving, gentle girl. She warmed up to people very quickly after her arrival and continues to impress us with her sweet nature. She is also a wonderful mother to her three little ones.
