Rosie & Ronnie were being taken from a factory farm to a slaughterhouse when the driver parked his triple-decker trailer and then abandoned it, leaving the animals in the hot sun without water. The trailer was seized and the pigs were taken to Poplar Spring Sanctuary. Although the corporation who owned the pigs was not prosecuted for for abandoning them, they agreed to sign the pigs over to the sanctuary in lieu of paying them $10,000 to cover expenses. Forty of them, including Maggie and Aurora, were taken to Farm Sanctuary's New York shelter to live out the rest of their lives.
