The piglets were stolen from the farmers property and given to the vegan activist’s animal refuge in Victoria, Australia.
An angry farmer is fighting a vegan activist for the return of his five piglets after they were stole from this home and given to her.
Victorian police are investigating the theft of the piglets from Sam McCarthy’s farm in Cranbourne – with the unknown thief also releasing 30 other pigs, a goat, several rabbits and McCarthy’s per American bulldog.
The piglets – four of whom has to be raised inside his home because they needed to be bottle-fed every three hours – were taken from his farm on September 23rd. They were later given over to Pearcedale RSPCA centre before being transferred to animal refuge Edgar’s Mission in the Macedon Ranges.
Edgar’s Mission is a non-for-profit sanctuary for rescued farm animals that is run by vegan, Pam Ahern. When the image of the missing piglets was posted on the Facebook page Mr McCarthy was refused the piglets when he went to get his piglets back.
“She wouldn’t let me in the door… I’ve done nothing aggressive or threatening, I just want my pigs back,” My McCarty said.
RSPCA Victoria Chief Executive Dr Liz Walker confirmed that all five piglets had been transferred to Edgar’s Mission from the Pearcedale Centre for ‘rehabilitation and further treatment’.
“Over the weekend, the Pearcedale Animal Care Centre was contacted by a second individual who claimed ownership of the piglets and asked that they be returned. RSPCA Victoria is now making arrangements to return the piglets, once a final veterinary assessment has been completed” Ms Walker said.
