Angie’s Rescue: Pigs CAN Fly!

by Barbara Thumann-Calderaro

Mr. McGregor is a pig farmer, meaning that his job is to fatten his pigs up and sell them off to the butcher. But when he starts to befriend his new pig, Angie, he begins to question if she really deserves her fate on the butcher’s block. Can a man change? Can a pig fly?

This short story addresses challenging questions like “Why love one but eat the other?” and Jeremy Bentham’s infamous quote, “The question is not, ‘Can they reason?’ nor, ‘Can they talk?’ but ‘Can they suffer?’” It is based on a real pig named Angie who was rescued. Find more about Angie’s story at the back of the book.
