Back in September, three runaway pigs were rescued by Edgar’s Mission, an animal sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. When one of the pigs started gaining weight much quicker than the other pigs, the sanctuary staff soon realized that they had actually saved more than three pigs. On December 6th, mama pig Wonder Woman gave birth to eight piglets!

Wonder Woman and her eight babes are all happy and healthy. The piglets were given very festive names: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. You’ll love all the pictures of these sweet little piglets. Be sure to stop by Edgar’s Mission’s Facebook page, too, to see their video of the piggies in action. (The video has been shared about 4,000 times!)
