A piglet at Farm Sanctuary who was rescued after falling out of a truck headed to the slaughterhouse has been named after celebrity fitness trainer and vegan Bob Harper. The Biggest Loser trainer, who was named Farm Sanctuary’s 2010 Walk for Farm Animals spokesperson, received more than 1000 “likes” after he posted a picture of the piglet on his Facebook fan page. The piglet was initially rescued by a man who was driving behind the transport truck that the pig fell from, and cared for the pig’s road rash wounds at his apartment, before the piglet found his permanent home at Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY. Farm Sanctuary named the piglet after Harper to acknowledge his continued work in farm animal advocacy.
