I was at flea market and went to the animals and there were about 25 piggies in a 2x2 cage.Some were babies and They kept escaping and I even picked one up but this was before I could have guinea pigs so I had to put it back and I felt so bad there were even dead guinea pigs in the cages. They also had no water and it was about 100 degrees or more. I wish I could go back and just take them all.

Omg! That's horrible! I would have taken them all. Just grabbed the cage and left. They don't deserve any money for the way they were treating those poor piggies :'(
Jeez, I would have flipped!!!I would have FREAKED. I would have yelled at them. I swear some people can be SO ignorant!!!! Gosh, this makes me SO FLIPPING MAD!

Remember, no matter how sorry you feel for flea market pigs, you should not buy them. Sure, it gets that one pig into a good home, but it shows the seller that there's a demand for more pigs, which means more breeding. Worse yet, some of the vendors will think, "I should make them look bad because people who feel sorry for them are more likely to buy them" and then they're in even worse conditions. I know how hard it is to pass up these pigs, but please, please, please do it for the greater good.
