Hillside Animal Sanctuary have promised that if nobody claims the piglet, who they have named Percy, they will give him a loving home.

Wendy Valentine, who founded the sanctuary, says it’s a mystery where Percy came from.

“People have pigs as pets but find they can’t cope, so perhaps he was abandoned. However, if he’s from a farm it’s unlikely the farmer would notice one piglet missing.”

Percy was found by staff at Gordon Signs in Old Catton who saw him dashing through their garden.

Simon Gordon, Managing Director, said catching Percy was a team effort.

“General Manager Colin Skipper rounded him up and secretary Sue Moakes had a dog cage to keep him in until he was collected, as well as some dog biscuits to feed him.”
