The baby pigs – three pink, one ginger, and one black & white – were rescued by Royal Veterinary College students studying part of their course at the Dorchester campus’ Farm.

Animal Technicians and students have been bottle feeding the piglets on the hour every hour around the clock.

Technician, Barbara Holden, said: “Ultimately we will place the piglets with another sow to foster once she’s had her litter, but until then we’re all mucking in!”
