Terrell County -- A South Georgia prison has a new mascot of sorts. Inmates at the Terrell County Correctional Institute are caring for a homeless pot-bellied pig.
The pig was found wandering off Highway 32. Terrell County Code Enforcement brought her to the prison because they didn't have the means to care for her.
"She loves to have her nose scratched," said Terrell County Code Enforcement Director, Martha Ann Coe. "She does not like for anyone to touch her on the tummy. The guys here at the institution have been taking up a lot of time with her. She is just friendly. When we got out the truck Monday morning she came up to us wagging her tail like a dog."
Some of the prisoners are even sacrificing some of the little bit of fruit they get with their meals and giving it to the pig. Officers believe the pig's owners probably just dumped her near the highway.
If you'd like to adopt her... call the Terrell County's Code Enforcement at 229-995-4410. The pig will stay there until they find her a new home.
