Over the summer, I found an abandoned bear in someone’s trash in Phoenix. But this was a special bear. He was transgender and identified as a pig, so while he was bear looking, she decided long ago she was a female pig. I identified her properly on our first meeting and carried Risen Pig with me all over the southwest before I found a place for him in a homeless village outside LAX. Much as she enjoyed her time with me, she knew it was time to continue her journey on alone to let others know that there are bear looking pigs and hidden girls out there everywhere. Here is Risen Pig at her new squat out near the LA airport.
