Tiergarten Delitzsch, a German zoo, has a new, super cute resident rolling in its mud…
A pot-bellied piglet!!
This little baby is extra special because she's the only survivor from her litter.
Sadly, four out of the five piglets died due to birth complications.
The mother is doing well now and is taking extra special care of her one baby.
The little baby, blissfully ignorant to how close to death she was, spends her time frolicking in mud puddles, not a care in the world.
She's a little miracle of life and she's so adorbz!!
We just wanna squeeze her!!

Puratone Pig Farm is the center of the latest heartbreaking story of animal abuse, as Mercy for Animals Canada has caught employees treating defenseless pigs horribly.
The laundry list of acts include castration and mutilating piglets, dragging pigs by their ears to their deaths, gestation crates, and slamming baby pigs against metal or the ground if they are not growing fast enough.
Despicable!!! What sane human being would do these things!?!?!?
Check out the shocking and unbelievably sad footage (above).
There is no confirmed investigation underway, but Manitoba's animal welfare department has received the video.

It's a BIG baby day at the Czech Republic's Ostrava Zoo as 17 piglets are showing off their cuteness.

That's a lot of little piggies to go Wee, Wee, WEE! LOLz!

For Puppy Bowl VIII, the folks at Animal Planet wanted to do something a bit extra special.
What did they do? They got Piglet Cheerleaders!
Four piglet, Hank, Beulah, Khalessa, and Othello, were brought in to give the head cheer-piggy, Bubbles, some support.
Bubbles looked so adorable and strutted herself around the field, smiling for the cameras.
Miss Piggy better run for her money!
Check out Bubbles backstage as she gets ready to cheer on her puppies!

Yeti, the Cuban farm dog, not only nurses her new litter of pups… she also nurses 14 piglets!
This isn’t one of those stories of an animal adopting a baby animal of a different species whose mother had died: the piglets' mother is still alive.
When the piglets were around 15-days-old they started following Yeti around and nursing from her on their own. And Yeti obliged.
One of the farm owners said:
“No one imposed this on the dog. The piglets discovered this on their own and began nursing with her when they turned 15 days old.”
Originally thinking the dog wouldn’t let the piglets nurse, the owner said:
“When the piglets ventured outside their pen, it seems they smelled the dog’s milk and began screaming at her. In the beginning we didn’t think the dog would let them suckle, but they insisted so much they ended up nursing with her.”
What a caring mama!
