Festival

There was a man who tried to pick up one of the piglets and it went scuttling and squealing to another part of the enclosure.  There was something so cute about that squeal that I almost paid money to go in there and chase it down, but I resisted the temptation.




There were two fences around the animals, no doubt to keep people from sticking their fingers in, but it also made taking photos pretty challenging.  Never mind, it was fun.
