Friends Build Sanctuary For Not-So-Mini Pet Pig
Derek Walters and Steve Jenkins adopted what they thought was a 'mini' piglet whom they named Esther. As their love grew, so did Esther. She grew to be hundreds of pounds proving to not be so mini after all. They loved their pet pig so much but knew she didn't belong in a house. She needed to be outside on a farm where she could roam and play comfortably. Esther became an internet celebrity once word got around. With the support of over 8,000 people they were able to build a sanctuary for their beloved pig. "Happily Ever Esther" will open in Summer 2015 in Ontario. The sanctuary will offer individualized, pre-booked tours, along with school tours and educational visits for groups at the farm and community garden.
