When Piggy the warthog and his two siblings were first found, they were just babies. A woman, living on a local wildlife estate, came across the little ones and wasn’t sure what to do with them.
The three baby warthogswere living in a drain near the road, and appeared to be alone, but the woman didn’t want to take any chances. She brought them some warm milk and waited, hoping their mother would return. She never did.
The woman reached out to Ian and Michele Merrifield, cofounders ofDaktari, a school that teaches African children about nature and its inhabitants. The warthogs were given the best care at the facility’s rehabilitation center, but sadly only one survived. Piggy was alone.
Piggy was determined to live, however, and he began socializing with other animals at the school. It wasn’t long before he met a Rottweiler puppy named Nikita.
The unlikely pair became fast friendsand began to bond.
