NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Animals of all kinds can do wonders for people recovering from illnesses or injuries, but one of them doesn’t quite blend in on the streets of Queens: Wilbur the pig.
Wilbur the pig’s story starts when Nadine Darsanlal got out of the Navy and she was in pain.
“I needed help,” she said.
Her service dog, Harvey, was there, but after a while, she said she figured he needed a companion.
Pigs can be a challenge when they’re young.
“Between the terrible two toddler stage and teething stage, you just want to pull your hair out,” Darsanlal told WCBS 880 reporter Alex Silverman in College Point.
