Life can occasionally surprise you with a blessing disguised as a curse! Esther the pig was adopted by Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter in Canada, who mistook her for a pygmy piglet. Two years and 667 pounds later, their “little piglet” turned out to be a full-size commercial pig, but Esther’s love and companionship had already altered their lives for the better.
When they learned how clever and kind Esther was (pigs are as intellectual as dogs and are widely regarded as cleaner animals), they couldn’t bear the thought of eating other pigs who were just as intelligent and nice, so they became vegans. They were so moved by their experiences with Esther that they decided to devote their lives to the construction of an animal sanctuary.
