Stop the sales of underage pet pigs!

The photo is Maggie Marie.  She was torn from her mom at 3 days old and sold at an amish auction.  Mini pigs cannot regulate their body temperature until at least 2 weeks old so being in an open box in the single digit temperatures she developed pneumonia and then bacterial meningitis set in to cause her to start having seizures... all within her first week of life.  Had Maggie been left with her mom, she would still be a living and healthy piglet.  Maggie was purchased by a family who realized they couldn't care for a sick piglet and was taken to a family with mini pig experience but it was too late.  She was held and loved 24 hours a day and seen several times by veterinarians but couldn't be saved.  Maggie passed away in her rescuer's arms at only 9 days old.  Please help us change the laws to protect these innocent babies. Please share this petition on all of your social media outlets! Together we can change the rules and regulations to protect these innocent babies! SIGN this petition to STOP the sales of underage pet pigs! Help us make Maggie's death matter by joining us in preventing the same thing from happening to other piglets! More laws and regulations governing miniature pigs can STOP the sales of underage or sick pet piglets! #MaggiesMovement
