Amelia is a 1-year-old pig who has been named after Amelia Earhart, the daring woman aviator from the 1930s. This Amelia came from a university testing center where she spent four months alone in a building basement. At Happy Trails, Amelia is separate, but next to other pigs until she gets used to other animals.
“When she came, all she wanted to do way lay out in the sun,” Fisher said. So much so that Amelia started getting a sunburn. Now, Fisher said, she gets sprayed with sunscreen lotion. “That’s about SPF 50 on her right now,” Fisher said. (recordpub.net, October, 2011)
