A litter of piglets saved from a barn fire in the UK have been served up as dinner to the firefighters who rescued them.
The 18 piglets and two sows were saved by the Pewsey fire team in February after 60 tonnes of hay caught fire.
In a move that's been condemned by animal activists, farmer Rachel Rivers thanked the fire fighters by gifting them sausages made from the same animals they had fought to save.
On the Pewsey Fire station Facebook page the firefighters thanked the farmer for her gifts.
"We can tell no porkies, the sausages were fantastic."
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
