The above video is of Kim Gordon piglet. Kim Gordon was found by a couple in a band that was finishing up their tour, and had taken a detour in South Dakota, where in the dark of night they saw something running around in the road, panicked, and tired, it was a piglet. Lanore stopped her car and caught the exhausted piglet, sun burned and covered in road rash from her fall off of a transport truck headed to a "finishing farm" Days later the couple brought the piglet they had named Kim Gordon to Farm Sanctuary, where she will live her life knowing only joy. The only remnant of factory farming Kim Gordon has is her docked tail, everything else is a distant memory for this sweet piglet that gets TONS of attention from visiting tourists on the Farm tours.
