Prince George’s County, Maryland, has ordered a woman to kill her 20-year-old potbellied pig, Gwendolyn, or she will be removed from her home and euthanized by the county. When she bought Gwendolyn, potbellied pigs were NOT prohibited, but now the zoning board has ‘reinterpreted’ the law. At age 20, trying to relocate her would be the same as a death sentence (20 is quite elderly for a potbelly, and she would not survive the trauma).
They will come for her tomorrow unless this is overturned on appeal today. Pray that the hearts of the board members will be touched to act with mercy and compassion.
I’ve been praying the Rosary, several Novenas to St. Francis, and am fasting.
