Wendy Lake, an animal rescuer from Ohio, cannot stop thinking about the potbellied pigs in Falmouth, Kentucky — there are nearly 200 of them on a property there and they desperately need help.
The images are haunting. Lake, founder of Red Oak Animal Rescue (ROAR) in New Richmond, Ohio, has never seen so many pregnant potbellied pigs in one pen before. "As soon as they’re of age they’re pregnant," Lake told The Dodo. "The piglets are everywhere. They nurse off whichever pig they can. Feed is thrown in and whoever is dominant gets it. It’s a dire, heartbreaking scene."
