3 Little pigs on the run!!. Anybody lost some adorable little porkers

Linda from Stanmore Bay

Hello Neighbours, wondering if anybody in the Dairy Flat Highway area near to Silverdale roundabout has lost 3 little piggies. They have been running around our business yard and the one next door. Think they may be very hungry and are used to being fed by people as they came running when I called them.
If anyone has any info please get in contact 027 2261733 Cheers Linda
