Rescued piglets given back to firefighters who saved them - as SAUSAGES

Post by Admin on Thu Aug 24, 2017 4:42 pm

A group of firefighters ended up eating the piglets they rescued after they were given them back as sausages.

The baby pigs and two sows were saved from certain death when the barn they were living in went up in flames in February.

But six months later they ended up on the barbecue when they were handed to the firefighters who extinguished the blaze - as organic bangers.

Fire crews had extinguished the fire at Lawn Farm in Milton Lilbourne, Wiltshire, owned by Rachel Rivers.

She said: "This was just a token gesture to the fire service. They were over the moon with them.

"This is just what we do - we are not an animal sanctuary. We give the pigs the best opportunity and the best life they could have for six months.

"They won't be kept inside, they are outdoors and fed with organic food which is grown on the farm."

The eighteen piglets - which were just two weeks old when firefighters saved their bacon - were turned into sausages after being fattened up for six months.

Rachel added: "At the time I told them I would give them the sausages."

Fire crews from Pewsey and Marlborough dashed to Lawn Farm, which Rachel manages along with husband Andy.

A Facebook post on the Pewsey Fire Station page gave the sausages glowing reviews and recommended them for an August bank holiday barbecue.

It read: "Exactly six months and one day since fire fighters Olsen and Richardson rescued 18 piglets from a fire in Milton, we got to sample the fruits of our labours from that February night.
