A NEW home is being sought for a friendly young pig that was found wandering alone.
Tiny Tim, who measures just 18 inches tall, was found by a dog walker on December 20 in Dingle Woods, near Llay.
He has since been in council accommodation after the dog walker contacted animal health officers at Wrexham Council.
Attempts to reunite him with his owner have proved unsuccessful.
When no one reported him missing, the council turned to social media and local press to try and locate the owner and even though the message went across the UK, reuniting Tiny Tim with his rightful owner was not possible.
The council had until January 10 to reunite him before a new home could be sought.
With this deadline now passed, the process of rehoming him has begun.
Officers decided to name him Tiny Tim, as his plight over the Christmas period reminded them of Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol.
Steve Jennings, animal health enforcement officer, said: “Following the campaign to find Tiny Tim’s rightful owner we received many kind offers of help, including several who offered to take him in if the owner could not be found.
“We had to make sure he was being homed in a suitable environment where his needs could be met – we are still not totally sure of his breed or how big he will grow – and this has influenced where he is to be rehomed.”
