The woman found a box with an abandoned piglet on the porch. He fell into the right hands.
In early September last year, an unusual story happened to a Chinese woman, Dora who has been living with a partner on the island of Sri Lanka for five years. Her gardener found a feral pig left by her mother in her backyard.
The animal was only a few hours old. He was very cold and hungry. Knowing that the couple love animals and keep four dogs in the house, three of which were rescued from domestic violence, the gardener placed the pig in a box and brought it to Dora.
The girl could not refuse to help an animal in trouble.
The first few weeks were very tiring. Dora tried to feed the piglet with cow’s milk, but after three days he fell ill and began to weaken. A wildlife specialist told the girl that in 90% of cases, young feral pigs die after the loss of their mother, and it is almost impossible to breed them in artificial conditions.
The piglet Yezhu had to be fed every hour. Dora and her boyfriend took turns standing in front of the lion cub. If they were even a minute late, the piglet would wake up and start screaming loudly. To keep the pig from freezing, he was surrounded by bottles of warm water. As they cooled, they had to be changed.
Fortunately, the couple’s efforts were not in vain. Yezhu has gone through the most difficult four weeks of her life and is on the mend.
Yezhu has been living in the house of Dora and her partner for almost a year now. A few months after her birth, it turned out that she was blind in one eye, so it was no longer possible to let her go free, and Yezhu would forever remain Dora’s fifth pet.
