Vietnamese pig: fashion to the abandonment mascot

Natura Parc picked up in 2012 more than one fortnight of abandoned Vietnamese pigs

The worst thing that can happen to a pet is that his arrival in the human sanctuary is the fruit of one of those fads that after a time eventually thicken the lists of animal collection centres. And in a matter of pets, each era had its fashion: reptiles, ferrets, French Bulldogs… Among the most recent and judging by the number of abandoned and collected specimens in 2012, the boom of makes two or three years in Mallorca were Vietnamese pigs.

The numbers of dropouts of animals continue to function as an indicator of the virulence of the economic crisis. The number of domestic animals collected by Natura Parc in the island in 2012 It follows the trend upward in recent years -2.511 total, 266 more than in 2011 (and not to mention the exotic species)–, including the entry in list of the latest chic mascot for urbanites to fashion. The facilities of the Foundation in Santa Eugènia welcome to 16 Vietnamese pigs collected this year, almost double the previous year.

The difficulties for the maintenance of animals due to the economic troubles are cause of abandonment both reframes that many homeowners are made after a while when they fall into the account that your pet is not always a puppy.

Usually, adult Vietnamese pigs do not exceed the 50 weight kg, Although Natura Parc technicians have already had to pick up to some other exemplary hybrid more of 200 weight kg. In addition, many people acquired by mistake or deception other species of exotic pigs reaching one larger than expected size.

So says the Chairman of the Foundation, Antoni Mas, who recounts the AWE experienced when picking up a copy of this weight who lived in an apartment in Palma and had the hind legs atrophied due to overfeeding and inactivity. «Normal, they only gave him to eat and not moved; that animal is not to be on a floor», points out more.

The Animalist Balearic Association denounced since months in the Town Hall of Palma the presence of a herd of abandoned pigs who had feral and which thrived rampant by the drying of the Real fields. Like other domestic animals, the Vietnamese pork nor seems to have no problem to adapt successfully to their forced emancipation. And weeks ago, the Civil Guard downed shots on a copy hybrid and very aggressive in the Puig de Santa Magdalena Inca that spooked some hikers who confused him with a wild boar.

Although at the start the fashion for several years its price it ranged between the 200 and 300 EUR, You can now find a Vietnamese pig with relative ease for less than 100 EUR. And the needs of the crisis have provoked that online trading is practically gave in some forums.

It is the tyranny of fashions. The same thing happened with dogs, says Carmen Rojas as witness in first line, spokesman of the Animalist platform of the Balearic Islands. «What has happened recently with the French bulldogs, He also spent with the Siberian huskys and before the Dalmatians». Red she sighs before what the vision of an endless succession of dog breeds seems that at one point or another were on the crest of the wave. But stops in Dalmatians. «How much damage did Walt Disney».

Cinema collaborates actively in putting fashion pets just as do celebrities who promote their pets off screens or scenarios (see the case of George Clooney with Vietnamese pigs). And to buy following the irrational impulse of fashion or mimesis with the star media turn the outcome tends to be repeated too often. The Son Reus kennels, to give an example, they are reaching a few dimensions of sacrifices unusually high in these times.

«The only positive is that the crisis also fewer animals are are becoming increasingly», says Rojas to warn that it is precisely by these dates, weeks after Reyes, When the dropouts of animals, that previously had been little pondered gifts for children, they soar. Rojas says that although not speak much of these rabbits are typical infant gift that then parents end up shedding although dropouts are very numerous almost have no notoriety.

The other problematic season is summer, When animals often stand between vacations and their owners. But not only we are talking about animal city. The number of abandoned-equidae (horses, donkeys, ponies) still on the 40 annual copies. Last summer, three horses caused serious accidents on the roads of Mallorca. Their owners, as in so many other cases of abandoned animals, they never came to claim them.
