But a college student renting a room on the farm saved Ferdinand's life. He reached out to everyone he knew to find a home for Ferdinand.

Farm Sanctuary happily welcomed the "master pear thief" to their Orland, California, shelter this week. Here, Ferdinand will "graze, bask in the sun, and eat as much fruit as his heart desires," Farm Sanctuary told The Dodo.
Ferdinand makes a grand entrance at his new home.
