Community rallying around piglet saved from traffic



Recommended


    LANCASTER — A Pennsylvania woman who rescued a piglet that was darting in and out of rush-hour traffic is getting help from local businesses to fund a surgery it needs to survive.

    Francesca McAndrews tells LancasterOnline she was driving to work when she saw the tiny swine dodging cars in Lancaster last month. She slammed on her brakes and caught the little pig. She says she’s had some practice catching pigs at fairs.

    She thinks the piglet fell off a livestock truck. Veterinarians say the animal needs surgery on a hernia it likely developed in the fall from the truck.

    If the hernia gets much bigger, it could rupture.

    Two local businesses are holding fundraisers to help pay for the pig’s medical bills. One event is called Swine and Wine.
