After Fleeing The Farm And Giving Birth In The Woods, A Mother Pig Was Rescued.


A mother pig and her piglets will live happily ever after after she escaped from a farm while pregnant and gave birth in the forest.

The mother, now named Matilda, was feeding her newborn litter when she was discovered in the woods in Nottinghamshire, England, by a dog walker, according to the BBC.

Anna Aston, the dog walker, contacted Brinsley Animal Rescue, a charity that finds new homes for rescued animals and runs its own sanctuary, and told the BBC that she wanted to see the mother and her piglets live happily ever after.

“I believe she has earned her liberty now,” Aston stated.

The rescue group posted photos of the pig family on Facebook, saying in one post on Thursday that it was "pleading" with the farm where Matilda had escaped to turn her over.

The organization reported the next day that the farmer had agreed and that the pigs had arrived at the sanctuary.

“Matilda and her piglets have spent the first night of freedom with us resting,” Brinsley Animal Rescue wrote in a subsequent post, adding that “she is such a good mother [to] them, now she no longer needs to worry about their plight.”

One of the nine piglets has been named Regan after Regan Russell, an animal rights activist who was killed last year after being hit by a truck while giving water to pigs on trailers on their way to a slaughterhouse in Ontario, Canada.

The rescue group also stated that once the piglets were old enough, they would look for "life-long homes" for them.
