Cape Fear Fair and Expo 2nd Vice President Skip Watkins said the Cape Fear Fair and Expo rescued Sir Oinksalot with a winning bid of $300. Watkins says he will be featured at the 2018 fair and in an upcoming fair promotion.

Sir Oinksalot was named by staff at The Brunswick County Animal Protective Services shelter.

Despite the circumstances he came from, shelter director Sgt. Colin Smoots said the roughly 5-year-old, 150-pound pig is “a pretty nice guy.”

According to our partners at the StarNews, Sir Oinksalot arrived at the shelter off Green Swamp Road on March 12 after neighbors spotted him and another pig running loose in the Supply area.
