Lucky the Pig Lives to Oink Another Day
I suppose the first question is, if you're a pig are you ever REALLY lucky? Well, yes, I suppose. Especially if you don't know you're a pig. And Lucky doesn't know how lucky he was, either!
You may recall our story about Lucky (not his original name), a 650-pounder that fell off a truck near Longmont, Colorado a few weeks ago. Lucky went bouncing down I-25 before shaking it off, but was disoriented and lost. Authorities could not find his owner.
Well, here's where the "Lucky" part comes in: There's Hog Haven Farm in Byers, where Lucky will spend his days with mostly pot-bellied pigs. But considering he was likely headed for the slaughterhouse when he fell off the truck, I don't think that will be a problem.
Here's to a great life, Lucky! DB
