    I rescued a small piglet tonight. Not going to post the situation. All that matters is I need help so I can help this little guy! I was told he's a Juliana after I done some research I do belive he maybe just a micro or mini as he is solid black. My concern is I was told he is only 3-4 weeks old!! To me that's way to young to be away from his mama. I was also told they were bottle feeding him. 1 tbs of evaporated milk 3 tbs warm water and some intent mashed potatos. He also eats some pig food as long as it's soaked in the milk. Can anyone give me some pointers to help this little guy??!! Thank you in advance
