HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - A family is nursing a piglet back to health that they pulled from the snow in Hagerstown.

Perry Smith tells the Washington Post (https://wapo.st/1nrNolM) he was driving his two children home from a day of skiing Friday night when he saw something moving up a snow-covered hill on the side of the road. He pulled over to find a piglet struggling to make its way through the snow.

Smith realized that the piglet would likely die. He pulled the animal from the snow and used his daughter’s sweatshirt to swaddle it.

Smith and his children brought the piglet back to their hotel where they kept it in the tub. He says he wants to take the pig to their Somerset home and keep it as a pet, but he’s unsure of the local rules about keeping livestock.
