Hundreds of homes needed for pot belly pigs


More than 400 pot belly pigs on one farm in Kentucky need to find new homes soon, or they will be put down.

 The state has stepped in and taken possession of the pigs, as many are reported to be malnourished. The owner faces charges of releasing them into the wild after neighbors complained about the pigs ending up in their yards.

 Multiple local and national rescue organizations are now working on a tight deadline to save the pet pigs. Originally, the state gave rescuers until September 14 to move the pigs to approved homes, but that deadline has now been extended to mid-October.

 Rescuers say they need about $40,000 in donations to spay, neuter and microchip the pigs.
