During a camping trip to the beautiful Kentucky Lake near Merritt, British Columbia, our campsite was visited by this adorable little fellow (or lady, it’s hard to say). He hung around for ages often eating right out of our hands. Obviously he has learned that most people are only to happy to share their food with woodland critters, as long as they are cute enough.

He enjoyed that cracker immensely. A little too much actually because the little pig was stuffing it down his throat so fast he started to cough! I managed to catch him right in the middle of his little coughing fit below. We were worried he had hurt himself, but he turned out to be just fine. but just to be safe we cut him off of crackers and gave him some peanuts and sunflower seeds instead.
