A vegan activist has rescued a pig who jumped off a truck that headed to slaughter.

Photographer and vegan advocate Rekash Sinanin saved the pig from her soon-to-be death when he saw ‘Babe’ – as he named the pig – running on the freeway in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

Sinanin shared the details of the rescue in a live Facebook video, and he asked his viewers to help him find a suitable home for the pig.


Sinanin said in the video that he managed to save Babe because he ‘was at the right place, and at the right time’.

“I managed to catch her before she was knocked and put her into my backseat,” added Sinanin.

The activist asked his viewers to help him find a loving home for ‘Babe’: “We need to find her a safe home; we need to find her a place where she can be protected.”

The pig was taken to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals [SPCA], where she will be taken care of until a suitable home can be found.

A spokesperson for SPCA said that the pig was badly bruised and very stressed when she was brought in, but added that “One of our vet’s are treating her and we hope she recovers.”

Rekash Sinanin received praise on social media, with many applauding him and saying ‘We need more humans like you’.
