Before the team arrived at the property, someone had notified them that there was a mother with four piglets among the pigs. They located the mother, but only saw three piglets — not four. At first, they worried that the fourth piglet had died, but then they spotted the piglet — whom they named Pamela — locked up in a separate pen.
The mother pig, named Agnes, ran to Pamela the instant rescuers opened her pen.
“She bolted there,” Friedman said. “She was starving, but she didn’t go for the food, didn’t go for anything — she just wanted to get her baby.”
