Justice for Piggy Sue

Many of you know that I had a pet hog named Piggy Sue. I have had her about five years. She was very tame and very sweet and wouldn't bother a fly. I got her when she was a baby, and had her spayed. If you are one of my FB friends, you have seen many photos of her and some videos. She knew many words...and commands. A big baby and very much loved by me.

About a month ago, she was stolen. I knew who did it, but I didn't have proof. Finally today I found out for sure who did it...I was right. The story I got was he took her to a nearby town to sell her but when they weighed her, she escaped.

That isn't exactly the truth. I set out to find out today, and all I knew was she was somewhere that they had a scale. I went to an auction barn but was told they don't deal in hogs, but the nice man there gave me the name of someone who did buy hogs in that town, and I found out where he was and I went there.

I asked him if he had bought any hogs from the "thief" and he said yes....and I asked about one that weighed about 400+ lb. and this is what he told me. He said he knew she wasn't wild....he knew she had been raised a pet because she was so tame, but thief told him he had trapped her and she was wild. The man didn't pay for her right then because whoever buys them from him, wasn't buying them right then, so he put her in a pen. Four days later a man came by and wanted to buy her and another pig. When trying to load them, they got away, and he couldn't catch Piggy Sue and so they shot her. I told him I didn't blame him....he didn't know she was stolen, and I was glad to know she was dead because I didn't want her to suffer. He said he would co-operate with me when I file charges in a couple of days.

I am getting together some pictures I have of her and videos.
Also the thief had pics on his phone and probably posted them on his FB page. I got a couple of my friends to send him a "friend request". Hopefully they can get on there and copy the pictures and sent them to me. I will take them when I go file charges on him. I will also have restraining order put on him so he can't come within 1000 feet of my property.

If you remember Piggy Sue and would like to help, please send an email to collins.marilyn@gmail.com and in the subject line put Justice for Piggy Sue. If you remember her, you might say that she was a beloved pet and you saw her pics on the internet and maybe a couple of kind words about her. I will take the packet to the DA when I go to file charges. I will also try to file cruelty to animals against him.

I have been absolutely ill since this happened. I have had so much anger because he thinks he got away with it. When I used to pet Piggy Sue, I always said the same thing over and over to her...."Mama loves Piggy Sue. Piggy Sue is Mama's pig. You mess with Piggy Sue, you mess with Mama." No. He is not going to get away with this. Thank you if you can help. I appreciate it.

oh that brings tears to my eyes! I know how much you loved Piggy Sue! I hope karma has something equally ugly in store for the thief! What a horrible person to do such a thing.
I am so sorry.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear this. What an @sshole. How do people steal anything, nevermind a living thing that is part of a home and is loved?

He WILL have to answer for what he's done. You can't do things like to people and animals and never have to answer for it.

I'm very sorry for your loss Marilyn, really.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

I honesly, truely, completely do NOT understand people who do things like this. Did he REALLY think he wouldn't get caught? How can he live with himself? Did he know she was a pet?

Three words: Karma's a b(tch

Marilyn, as I posted on FB, this breaks my heart for both you and Piggy Sue.She was more than a pet, she was your family. Pigs are smart creatures and I bet she knows she was loved and cherished.

Go after this b*stard.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

Oh, this is so sad. I am sorry for your loss, Marilyn. RIP, Piggy Sue. You were loved.

I wish horrible things on the b@stard who stole her. I hope his balls shrivel up and fall off. There!


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

I'm glad you found out what really happened, Marilyn and I hope that guy pays for what he's done in more ways than one. Arrogant glassbowl. He messed with the wrong person, I know that.

Great detective work, Marilyn. I hope knowing what happened gives you a little peace.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

Sure hope justice is done!


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

I am so sorry, Marilyn. Wish I could send an email....but until I get this MAC straightened out...it will not send. Special thoughts going your way....that you can successfully 'get' that guy and I am so sorry for your loss.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

awwww geez Marilyn-I am so very sorry that you are going thru this and what Piggy went thru as well-you already know how I too,am about pigs----he'll get his-I am sure of it


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

This angers me no end. I loved your Piggy Sue and all of the pictures you would post of her and the stories you would tell about her. I heard your voice talking to her. I heard that love in your voice for Piggy Sue. I will gladly send you an email, and Marilyn, go get him for all you can. That scumbag would probably steal a child too, if he thought he could get away with it. Does he not realize that our four legged kids are just like children to us....they are family. I am just soooo sorry all of this happened to you and Piggy Sue.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

This is so sad. The guy who stole her is a horrible creep and I hope he gets exactly what he deserves. And I don't understand why the person who bought Piggy Sue decided to shoot her just because she was running away. It is depressing how many mean, cruel people there are in the world.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

Marilyn, I am so sorry to hear about Piggy Sue. I loved your posts about her and your love and affection for her was so evident. She was beautiful. I hope and pray you get the justice you so deserve.


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

What???

This is beyond infuriating to me, and she wasn't even my pet. I can't imagine what you're going through.

((((Marilyn))))

RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

Sent!!!

I am so sorry to hear it! I sure hope there IS Justice for Piggy!


 o
RE: Justice for Piggy Sue

I don't fault the man who shot her. It isn't something I would have done, but he is in the business of buying and selling pigs. His place is very large, and when she got out, there was no way to catch her again. (Well, I probably could have, but I didn't know where to find her....she has been gone about a month). He was extremely nice to me and offered to help when I file charges. I would rather she be shot dead than sold to be treated no telling how. Due to her large size, she was a curiosity and a lot of people would have liked to have shot her and bragged about it. Or, worse, set a pack of dogs on her and let them kill her. That's how it is done around here. :( Piggy Sue thought she had gotten free....I hope she died quickly, and I hope her freedom was still on her mind.

Speaking of which....the guy who trapped her....took pictures. I felt sure he would post them on his FB page, and it was set to private. So I got one of my friends..to "friend" him. Connie (ND) sent me a message this morning that she (Rhonda) had gotten in. So I am very hopeful that she did. Rhonda, if you see this, please contact me so I can "friend" you again. I "unfriended" her so he wouldn't see my name on her list of friends. He would never think that I have friends all over the country and several foreign countries, and the reason I do, is because of my love for animals and my pets, like Piggy Sue.

I'm so sorry for you and Piggy Sue. This makes me so sad. Since I've started doing animal rescue, I have really come to dislike some people. I hope you get justice for you and Piggy Sue and he pays big time.
