Winston escaped death to regain the paradise of piglets. The little pink pig that was found along a busy boulevard in the neighborhood of Queens, New York, among the hundreds of animals - including cows, sheep, goats and chickens - that have apparently succeeded in escape, in recent years, the increasing number of urban slaughterhouses that make up the American metropolis.

Those who manage to escape are usually transferred to an animal sanctuary north of the city, where they can sell quiet days without fear of ending up in a pot.

"(Pets) who come here are not all nice, warned Susie Coston, director of Farm Sanctuary, an organization that hosted the last ten years more than 500 farm animals from the city. They know the smell of blood and they are afraid and they are very nervous. They always want to run away. "

The case of Winston, which owes its name to the readers of a newspaper who are interested in his fate, is not uncommon. The piglet was apparently leaking for several days when he was finally caught in an area of ​​the city where there are many butchers offering slaughter of live animals to their customers.

He was sent to the Sanctuary of Watkins Glen, a farm of 175 acres where he can have fun.

"Winston is going really well, said Ms. Coston. (He goes) his nights roll in the earth and in the mud with her best friend Ruby, a piglet who recently fell off a transport truck. "

Other residents of the sanctuary include Maxine, a cow caught in Queens six years ago after a police chase. An ear tag reveals that she was destined for slaughter, like a found in the South Bronx and a lamb rescued at a busy intersection in Brooklyn goat.

During the last year alone, the New York animal control officers had to catch up over a hundred chickens, 27 ducks, three goats and a pig.

Found in New York nearly 90 butchers where animals are slaughtered on the spot, two times more than 20 years ago due to the arrival of immigrants accustomed to consume freshly prepared meats. Animals - whether of birds, goats and sheep - are slaughtered and eviscerated on the spot, at the speed of lightning and compliance with Halal or Kosher practices.

New Yorkers who see an animal fleeing called the authorities, who are catching up and send them to a temporary sanctuary before transferring to a half-dozen private sanctuaries that account the state.

"We work very hard to ensure that the animals are kept in a place where they can live out their days in peace, " said the spokesman for Animal Care & Control of NYC, Richard Gentles.

Not true

She had no cause to think the animals were in danger. She came to my neighbors door a couple of weeks ago and he told her we were taking care of them regularly. She came again and he told her the same thing and pointed out that we had been there at least twice daily. Our lawn was taken care of weekly (we live in Florida so it grows), we opened and closed windows, our cars were in the drive at different times. He pointed this all out to her. She was told by animal control that they leave a note on the door and we would have 1 day to call in to confirm we did not "abandon" our dogs. We called within 2 hours
