As the title suggests "I have a pig"

He's called "Pig", & comes from an English couple who are moving back to the UK
He's approx 80 kg of "Pot-Bellied" pigness


That's it, really

Quite a busy Sunday as it turned out

Is this good news?

What are you going to do with your pig?

From the first post I assumed it's a pet, maybe not.

Pet or not, it deserves to have a companion of its own species. It is cruel to keep it in isolation.

Please get it a companion! They really need others.

It's one of the 5 freedoms of livestock welfare.

Thread title should now read I had a pig

Phone call this morning, many apologies, could the pig be returned?...didn't really want to see him go in the first place, rash decision etc

Pig has been returned....& I think may soon be UK bound


Is their a record for the shortest period of pig "ownership"

& will it still count if I put "experience of pig ownership..." on any future CV ?

When they see how much that will cost they may change their minds again.
I imagine importation of livestock makes dogs & cats easy.

Their initial reason for leaving the pig in France was for how much it would cost to take him with them
