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 ..

< Ear notching tells the producer which litter the pig was born to. The tool they use ,( pictured here ) is like a pair of scissors with razor blades .. No they do not be nice to the little pigs when they do this none of this is nice and of course no sedation either ... just a screaming baby grabbed and held screaming while they slice his little baby ears . If you eat pigs your eating babies PLEASE STOP EATING BABIES and put an end to this barbaric and cruel industry.

Sharing is Not Always Caring

Sharing stories of animals in distress helps bring awareness if someone will get past the horror and read the post and be active in doing something to bring about changes. Sharing is not caring if all its doing is circulating the abuse and no one is actually doing anything about it except sharing it. Calling The SPCA is not enough but emailing every animal rescue in the area , calling emailing the city council , protest store fronts, use social media by net working , call the local veterinarians , call the local newspapers , animal advocates, animal activists groups , create a petition, put posters up, radio stations and for lack of better works be a real pain in the ass to everyone!! The animals need you to do this and if the animals need vet support raise the funds with all the contacts you have made and get them there., If you love animals and you see harm or abuse or feel things are not right, THERE NOT RIGHT and stand up and do what needs to be done!! I see some article in the paper about the farm where those calves are and the SPCA will not be laying charges even tho many animals died there from lack of medical intervention and many more will die there for the same reason . Another crappy petting zoo supported by the general public to fulfill the need to see baby farm animals and just like the one in Kamloops!! Where is the help for them?? STOP SUPPORTING ABUSE by going to any public venue that has a petting zoo, they are using animals to suck you in to going there and buying what ever they are selling.
And one final note if your part n the grande scheme of making change is being an Activist then where the animals are makes NO difference,,get to work!! Rescuers simply can't do everything here !!
