Not Fit For A Pig

Conditions at a Talc Mine Road residence were “deplorable.” Animal control officers and rescue group operators went above and beyond to save three hogs from nightmarish conditions, seen in the photo on the right. The photo on the left shows the hogs’ new home, Flynn Fields Rescue, where they are being taken care of - “Every day they are learning new things about kindness from humans,” said rescue operators.  

 

        How long does it take two animal control officers and operators of a local rescue group to wrangle three hogs neglected and abused by their owners? 

Despite being several people strong, it took officers Nichole Strickland and Miranda Harrison with Mike and Christy Fields of Flynn Fields Rescue nearly six hours. 

The rescue took place on Wednesday, March 6 after the Drug Task Force called animal control officers to a residence on Talc Mine Road. Rescue efforts lasted from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.
