A number of pigs that were found by animal rights activists in seemingly abandoned conditions will remain with their owner unless they are adopted, animal rights group Time For Change have said.

There had been hope that a farm in Għammieri was going to to adopt up to 35 of the pigs found in the Ċirkewwa. However, they've backed out of the arrangement, and the adoption deadline of Tuesday 4th September has now extended, restarting calls for sanctuaries and farms to step up and adopt a pig.

The owner of the pigs allegedly said he had two pigs, one of which was pregnant, and ended up with 35 pigs

Time for Change are now working around the clock to get the pigs adopted. They said that those who were interested in adopting were disheartened by the complicated adoption process.

"The pigs will remain with their owner until adopted," said Time for Change. "The adoption process has now changed so interested adoptees must contact ourselves at Time for Change or on our e-mail [email protected], or Animal Liberation Malta."

What do you think should happen to the pigs?
