    How do they think they will get $200 for a starving animal (if that is a current pic of him) his ribs are showing in that pic and mini pig is not that big to begin with....they need to just give him to a home for free if they can not care for him anymore like the ad says.

    I copied and pasted the link - saw the pig. Looks underweight, looks like I can see ribs. Not good.
