Logan Paul’s Pet Pig Pearl Was Found Abandoned

YouTuber Logan Paul, 27, has expressed his fear as the pet pig he gave away two years ago was found abandoned and allegedly mistreated & beaten alongside a dead pig. Several years ago, the YouTuber and influencer bought Pearl, a pet pig, when the “teacup pig” craze became popular.

According to The Gentle Barn, an animal sanctuary with a branch in California, Paul’s pig, Pearl, was found in a field next to an already deceased pig, which he purchased in 2020. After Pearl was rescued, he quickly realized she would not remain a small pig indefinitely, and within a year, she had grown up to be a pig.

According to PEOPLE, the Gentle Barn revealed Pearl’s recovery story on its TikTok on Jan. 9, saying they recently received a call about a pig abandoned in a field. It was discovered that the pig was seriously injured when rescuers arrived. The sanctuary captioned that TikTok video,

“She came to us with tattered ears and a potentially life-threatening infection in her uterus that has since been healed. She’s clearly been through so much trauma that we can’t begin to imagine, but she’s now safe with us at The Gentle Barn. From what we’ve been told, it’s believed she was purchased originally from a breeder by an influencer.”

“People often buy ‘mini pigs’ or ‘teacup pigs’ for clout online, believing they will stay small. When they inevitably grow very large and have many unexpected needs, they’re sadly discarded.”

Charity Gentle Barn, who did not identify Paul as the prior owner, complained that the pig had been “irresponsibly rehomed” by a renowned YouTuber. Following the discovery of a picture Paul tweeted of himself with a fully grown Pearl in February 2020, commenters on Gentle Barn’s TikTok video assumed that the pig in the video was Paul’s. Also, it has been reported that Paul has written to the charity to express his gratitude for the rescue and offer monetary help for her treatment.
