Instead of pigging out on the cherry danish that she had at home, a New Jersey woman used it to lure a stranded piglet to safety.
Tamala Lester, director of the Barnyard Sanctuary for rescued farm animals in Warren County, told NBC New York that she had received a call from a motorist who spotted a reportedly scared pot-bellied piglet wandering along the side of a highway on Wednesday evening.
Lester also posted videos of the pig, now named “Cherry,” sharing a pen with “Delilah the Goat” and paling around with fellow rescued animals:
