Unique talent saves Pigcasso from the slaughterhouse

Pigcasso was originally bred to be slaughtered at a pig farm but was rescued at just four weeks old by Joanne Lefson, who was upset by the squalid conditions she was kept in.

She’s been discovering her potential as an artist and is already selling her pieces, described by some as “abstract expressionist”.

The funds raised from art sales go towards the South African Farm Sanctuary, a haven for rescued farm animals.
