Update: Sadly, Jerry the lamb was rushed to the vet on Wednesday with a sudden case of bloat and passed away. "I cannot believe it. He was running around playing all morning," Megan Mostacci told The Dodo, adding that she was glad so many lives were touched by his story. "People can see what a sweet soul he was." You can make a donation to the sanctuary in Jerry's memory.
When a little lamb named Jerry first entered the world, he was a disappointment.
The runt of his litter at the Ontario farm where he was born, his mom rejected him in favor of his bigger, healthier siblings. Then the farmer decided it just wasn't worth the effort to bottle-feed him, which is what he would need to survive.
