Pet pig in Saltburn house

A pet pig called Cocoa has settled down to life with an animal-loving family in Saltburn. The eight-month old porker

trots round a large living room and back yard at the Moore’s home in Emerald Street. “Cocoa occasionally goes out

for a walk when she has to wear a harness,” said Gordon Moore, a floor layer, who is dad to owner Sophie, 11, and her brother Kane, nine. “We have a walking licence

from Redcar and Cleveland Council’s trading standards department and have to go round a specific route, Emerald Street and the seafront only. We get a few looks on our walks which don’t need to be very frequent. Cocoa, who is just over 3ft long and nearly 20 inches tall, prefers to trot round our living room, which is a linked-up back and front room. She likes jumping on to the settee.”

4 People Not Profit Free Film Night

The 4 people not profit returns with La Bestia (The Beast), showing upstairs in the marine on 16th November. Doors open at 7.00pm with the film starting at 7.30pm. Unable to afford another form of transportation but

also seeking to avoid Mexican immigration checkpoints, thousands of Central American nationals from countries like El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras or Nicaragua, dangerously and boldly hop on top of moving freight trains going from southern Mexico to many northern destinations along the US-Mexico border. In filming the testimonies of some Central American

migrants, Pedro Ultreras exposes more than the dangers they face. If La Bestia shows the brutality of Mexico’s southern border, it also offers the compassion found in shelters for migrants and the bonds that develop among the men and women who share the same ride and misfortune.

Dad Gordon Moore looks on as Sophie, 11, and Kane, nine, play with Cocoa, the dog-loving pig in Emerald Street

A single dad, Gordon, who bought

the pet at Pately Bridge in March, said Cocoa was mostly a Gloucester Old Spot variety and was due to grow another two inches. She is licensed with the Government agriculture department Defra who ruled that her food should be pig nuggets, not food scraps. “We also give her grapes as a treat

sometimes. The food rules are because of the possibility of foot-and-mouth disease being caught. The movement restrictions mean that if a vet is needed he has to visit the house.” Gordon admitted there were

sometimes ‘accidents’ on the carpet. “Neighbours don’t mind her though there is the

occasional grunt from her early in the morning. Cocoa likes being with our two Yorkshire terriers, the cat and goldfish. She sleeps indoors mostly on the settee with a blanket over her head alongside the dogs. She’s very much like a dog and we all love her.”
