Big Dave returns to Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm
On Tuesday, May 15, the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA) brought Big Dave, the seven-hundred-pound pig who has become a community and staff favorite, back to Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm. Dave has been living at the farm since 2009, but had begun to test the electric fencing in March, and broke out several times. The MSPCA was called and offered him housing while a new wire and electric fence was built. Dave returned to his new enclosure, and has been welcoming guests from his favorite mud puddle since. Donations from the community helped pay for the new fence.
