Pigskin Rivalry Gone Too Far | Urban Wildlife
Two young pigs were at the center of a football rivalry between Gonzaga College High School and Saint John’s college high school.
During a November 4th game at Gonzaga High someone spray painted ST. JOHN’S on both pigs and then released them onto the football field. The poor animals were frightened and in a panic. Luckily, students and staff members were able to safely corral the pigs into an equipment shed until Animal Control arrived.
The Animal Control Officers were able to remove the pigs from the school grounds. Thankfully, the pigs were not injured and have since been transferred to an animal farm sanctuary in Maryland, where they will live out the rest of their lives in peace and harmony.
So far no one has claimed responsibility for the tasteless prank. The Humane Law Enforcement Department is looking for answers; this was an act of animal cruelty.
These pigs were put through a lot of stress, and they could have hurt themselves or someone else. If anyone has information on who was behind this, we urge them to call 202-BE-HUMANE (202-234-8626), all calls are confidential.
