BLAIRSTOWN, NJ (AP) — An animal sanctuary says a pastry helped save the life of a pot-bellied piglet that was tossed onto a busy highway in New Jersey.

Barnyard Sanctuary Director Tamala Lester says a motorist called after seeing another driver toss the animal onto the side of Interstate 80 on Wednesday.

Lester says the motorist stood guard by the terrified piglet for 45 minutes until she could get to the scene. Lester says she used a cherry Danish to lure the animal closer and grabbed its hind legs to take it to safety.

The piglet has been named “Cherry.” It is recovering at the animal sanctuary in Blairstown and will be put up for adoption.
