05 Oct YOU CAN’T BEAT BETTE!
Chenoa Manor is thrilled to report that Bette the pig is on the mend and back to her curious self after being struck by two hunting arrows on the farm property sometime before the evening of Tuesday, September 30th. She is currently recuperating at Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center, where she has received state-of-the-art care from a compassionate team led by Dr. Marie-Eve Fecteau. Thanks to their efforts, the on-farm assistance of Dr. Curtis Beidel, from New Bolton’s Field Service, and the kindness of strangers, Bette is out of danger. She will remain at New Bolton Center until she is given the ok by the team to return home, expected to be later this week. You can read more about Penn Vet’s efforts on their website. Her farm family is eagerly awaiting her arrival, and her pal Sebastian deserves extra kudos for his remarkable help in ensuring she made it to the New Bolton Center in time.
The State Police have been given a full report and the PA SPCA Officer will be on the farm this week to conduct a thorough investigation. We are asking anyone with information that could lead to the apprehension of the person who committed this horrible crime to please contact the state police, Avondale Barracks, at 610.268.2022. To keep up with the latest news on Bette’s recovery, please visit Chenoa Manor’s Facebook page. We are deeply touched by the huge outpouring of support Bette has received through phone calls, messages and social media. Please spread the word so that together we can catch the perpetrator of this terrible crime.
