Family Rescues An Adorable Baby Pig Before It Freezes To Death In The Storm

One lucky pre-bacon &mdash. The only thing Ill ever call a pig &mdash. Has a family from Hagerstown, Maryland to thank for not becoming a pig-sicle this weekend.

Perry Smith and his son, also named Perry, spotted the stranded pig, which I'll call Lil Bacon, while driving after a day of skiing. Smith claimed when he spotted Lil Bacon, the pigletwas shivering and struggling to make its way through the banks of snow that piled up during the blizzard this weekend.

Realizing Lil Bacon wouldn't survivethe storm without intervention, Smithgrabbed a sweatshirt and pulled the piglet into the car around 10 pm on Friday.

Our young friend is doing well-he just finished some mashed bananas and water for breakfast and is resting nicely. Snow…

Lil Bacon wasnt out of the smokey forest just yet. Because of the piglet’s exposure to the frosty elements, it took the family a night of nursing and swaddling to bring the tiny pig back to health.

By Sunday afternoon, Lil Bacon was happily eating bananas, drinking water and having ointment applied to its sores.

Once Lil Bacon, which the Smiths decided to name Wee Wee, was healthy, the family triedto figure out a way to adopt it.

Perry, the son, told The Washington Post, “I'd like to take him home and accept him as a member of the family.”

This would be a quick attempt at housebreaking Wee Wee til we get to @poplarspring ! Can’t hit golf balls til spring anyway..

Because of theirhometowns policy in regard to keeping livestock, the Smiths weren’t able to keep Wee Wee as a pet.

You can worry about all that later. For now, just focus on this picture of Wee Wee eating a bagel.

Wee Wee just added bagels to his limited menu..score!

Smith said the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, Maryland agreed to take Wee Wee after the snow clears. He also said one of the criteria for picking a sanctuary was a place that wouldn’t send Wee Wee to the slaughterhouse. Lil&rsquo. Bacon lives to see another day.
