The pig is a four year old castrated man.

Diane Aitcheson, the manager of the SSPCA center, said, “We would love to find Kevin to be the forever home he deserves.

“He would love a farm home in the Edinburgh area with someone who has experience with pigs and has the appropriate CPH license to raise them.

“He loves fruit but hates potatoes and always grunts happily in front of anyone who comes by.

“Kevin needs to have a suitable facility with an insulated shelter to keep him cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and a suitable fence to keep him safe.

“He loves to play with his treat ball and has enjoyed playing with and eating a pumpkin on Halloween. Its new owner has to change its enrichment games regularly to prevent it from becoming a “boar”.

“Kevin is a tall, friendly guy who might even make a home in a petting zoo or something like that, where he can get a lot of attention and be in the spotlight!”

If you think you can give Kevin Bacon a new home, apply through the SPCA Scottish website.
