A SECOND plague of Vietnamese pigs arrived in Javea’s Saladar last month and continued to breed in force, making their way down to the Muntanyar urbanisation.
Until last week, residents were still waiting for the problem to be addressed by the council but as of Wednesday this week, the pigs seem to have miraculously disappeared.
It is rumoured that the pigs have been rehomed in Madrid but it has not transpired if they have been rehomed privately or by a refuge.
The plague of pigs grew exponentially as many people were feeding them.
Some of the pigs were even deformed caused by interbreeding.
Rachael Macdonald, who rescued the first lot of pigs that arrived in Javea earlier this year said that if the second lot of pigs are to return, people should refrain from feeding them, especially as it tempts the pigs closer to the road where they are at risk of causing an accident.
Rachael and her daughter Hannah worked tirelessly to rehome the first lot of 24 pigs, which proved no mean feat.
14 of the first lot of pigs were rehomed by Dusty’s Home Stead Animal Rescue in Benidorm.
Dusty’s relies on donations to help care for its animals – for more information or to get in touch, check out ‘Dusty’s Home Stead,farm Animal Rescue’ on Facebook.
