This little piggy went to Iona.
Police were called Sunday with a report of “a pig on North Avenue.”
The New Rochelle Humane Society responded, and found this pig in the backyard of a fraternity across the street from Iona College on North Avenue.
“A group of students claimed the pig ‘just wandered into their yard’ a few days prior”, says NRHS Shelter Director Dana Rocco. “They were feeding it Cheerios. At least it was the unsugared type.”
The students also just happened to have a crate the right size for him, and a name: Payton.
Payton is now hanging out at the NRHS Shelter, where we photographed him. The staff is in contact with Farm Sanctuary, which will find it a more appropriate home. We are told he’s a pot bellied pig. Aw.
Now I want him.
