Roscoe , They Just Want To Be Loved

This precious baby was pulled from a litter as the runt and saved from being trampled on and then eaten ( if he made it to 5 months old). The people had no way of keeping him and reached out to Hearts On Noses Sanctuary. 12 years ago . . By fluke i had an approved family not too far from here and had been out there several times. I thought the couple were wonderful . They were checked out and yes they would take this baby big pig. Roscoe too young to be neutered but under contract to do so found his way to this new home. The red flags started immediately. They didn't have straw for him when his arrival was a day away . They came here and got all my stuff such as a portable pen for the house , bedding and dishes .
I began calling this family every two weeks once he was of age to neuter and after months of promises and me working full time well more time went by.
I was heading out to pick up some homeopathic remedies and by fluke i ended up on the very street Roscoe lived at. Not prepared with treats when i jumped out of the truck i started to grab the rich grass on this 5 acre piece so i had something to offer Ros. The family were both outside working and the women looked at me and asked "do they like grass?" You have no idea the huge red flag this is and my blood was boiling when i asked " did you get him neutered ?" and they replied "no". .
While walking up the hill to the little pen they had when i approved them there he was ,..laying in mud , the water container was bone dry and his house without one shred of bedding in it. I said to the women " he is not living like a companion animal!! And she said " yea well we were thinking of getting rid of him"... WTF?? They were under contract and i told them both in no uncertain words that i would be back with a horse trailer and take care of that . .
Roscoe is our biggest guy here and he most certainly just wants to be with you. When he is running about the acreage at will he will try and bash in the feed shed doors , tip over wheelbarrows and flip benches cause he can, He really just wants to hang out with you and be loved. You have to stop what your doing and feel the warmth of his huge self as he stands as close to you as possible . He looks into your eyes and opens his mouth with big ha ha ha's and i hold onto his big head and kiss his blonde bristles. His love pours from his giant self into your heart and yours back to his as the warmth crawls up your legs and you hold him as best as you can. Its a hug from an innocent species that from no fault of their own is imprisoned by the billions , tortured then executed as a babies so you can eat them.
Please stop eating babies it for Roscoe ..
