Angelo the Rescued Lamb

Angelo the lamb and a silbling were born this September in the back of a transport truck on the way to the slaughterhouse. The sibling was trampled to death when the sheep were unloaded. A passerby rescued Angelo and he ended up at Farm Sanctuary, an animal refuge.

We thought our friend Evelyn, who sent us Angelo's story, and our readers would like to see him today -- a happy, healthy and very active lamb. So we're going to share a video.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Angelo's story can be read at the Farm Sanctuary website.

We hope you had a happy Halloween.

  9. You go, Angelo! I am so glad that he has a happy place to live now. I can't believe that someone would send a pregnant ewe to the slaughterhouse. What were they thinking? Maybe they weren't thinking at all and that was the problem.

  10. What a sweet little lamby! He looks like he would be fun to herd!
    It a very heartwarming story.

  11. Now this is a better story. So glad that he was rescued and is running and romping around in the fields. So hope that he will be able to do this the rest of his life.
