Rasher the pig launches dash for life
THE Tamworth Two appear to have started a trend – Rasher, a brother of Butch and Sundance who escaped last month – ran off as he was being loaded onto a van taking him for slaughter.
He slipped through the arms of owner Mike Hawker after barging him aside and jumping over a paddock fence.
He was captured last night three miles from the farm in Allington, Wiltshire, by animal sanctuary owner Kevin Stinchcombe, who plans to reunite him with his brothers.
