Batman the Piggy taken in by shelter after being abandoned at groomer

- Someone took a little piggy to a grooming business, and the poor little piggy never made it home.

His owner never came and got him, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay says, and so the pig, nicknamed "Batman," is now at the shelter.

Shelter officials say he is not feeling abandoned anymore though. The five-month-old potbelly pig is getting plenty of love from the staff and volunteers.

He's doing great and will be up for adoption soon.
