Two birds at the volunteer house. The first sat on the line for a couple of days before unfortunately dying – we think he was in a state of torpor. In better news, the toucan which flew into one of the windows was treated by the magical hands of Freddy and soon recovered to fly away.
In other news, La Hesperia’s resident pig “La Peggy” was the focus of much attention this week and one of the volunteers, Anna, tried to artificially inseminate Peggy. The event included Freddy catching teh bus back from the animal supply store with the, ahem,,,,required stuff, a quick look at a video on youtube to work out what needs doing and lots of food to distract Peggy while she lost her virginity (sort of). We’ll keep you posted as to how things work out.
