Hand reared and thriving – Pinky, Perky and Porky
These three little piglets are being given some TLC by staff at a Westcountry visitor attraction after being rejected by their mother.
The adorable Berkshire piglets were born at the Big Sheep attraction near Bideford, in North Devon.
However, they became malnourished and were in serious danger of perishing when their mother flatly refused to feed her newborn trio.
Despite trying everything they could think of, staff were unable to get the mother to bond with her little ones, and so were forced to step in to the role, and have now drawn up ongoing rotas which see them feeding the piglets by hand every three hours.
