For most of the pigs, who weren’t used to getting any exercise, this was simply too much, and they ended up drowning or dying from exhaustion. But the pig who turned up on Walls’ street was one of the lucky ones.
Walls named the pig Flo, initially thinking he was a female pig (he later discovered he was a male), and decided to do everything he could to look after him. He took Flo into the safety of his yard, and he gave him food and water. He also covered Flo’s skin with mud to try and ease the pain of the sunburn.
“I love animals … and anything suffering, I’m going to be there for,” Walls said. “I tried my best to make sure the pig was safe.”
