Sorry, the pigs here only close the threads, not save them!

The pig was a lot more heroic than the person who took this video...

Cute. I get the impression that this is something the pig does on a semi regular basis, starting with "goat in the water!"

Then there is the old joke........

A preacher visiting his flock in the country happens to see a pig walking around on 3 legs. The preacher stopped by and asked the farmer. My son, what's with your pig with only 3 legs?
Well preacher says the farmer, this pig is very special to my family and me, well just 2 months ago, I'm working underneath my tractor, the jack fell and the tractor was crushing me. I yelled and my pig rushed to my rescue, dug me out and pulled me away from the tractor.
Well that's very commendable says the preacher..but..
That's not all preacher, last week my house caught fire and my pig pulled my 2 young daughters to safety. It even received a hero gold ribbon, from the village mayor.
I understand says the preacher, but that still doesn't explain the missing leg!
Well like I said preacher, this pig is very special to my family and well, we just cannot bring ourselves to eat it all at once.

.
While mowing hay on his ranch in MT, an uncle on DW side, accidently cut off a leg of a fawn hiding in the hay. He doctored it and even made a wooden leg (true story). For several years he made new wooden legs until one year he did not see the buck anymore. While it probably died of natural causes, if the buck was taken by a hunter it would have made for an interesting bar story.
