If anyone knows me, they know pigs are my FAVORITE animal! This story absolutely breaks my heart....
The Independent is reporting that several of the Bahamas' famous swimming pigs have died. Seven of the twenty two pigs in beachside colony were found dead in the water after tourists allegedly fed them junk food and alcohol. WHO GIVES PIGS ALCOHOL!?!
While local officials have yet to give an official cause of death, Wade Nixon, the pigs owner, said the tragedy was caused as a direct result of the pigs being fed the wrong food. The official investigation is on going.
“We had the government vet in there [who] examined them all thoroughly," Nixon informed The Nassau Guardian about the upsetting situation. "He gave them shots, he gave them medicine, and I was there and I worked with them for three days straight. We had them pigs there almost 30 years, and never has this happened before, but now we are going to have to regulate it."
Now regulations will be put into place so that no tourist can feed the pigs! I pray this keeps them safe & happy!!!
