ROBY, Texas -

A sad situation in Roby is now looking a little brighter.

Over the weekend, a pack of dogs mauled 13 show pigs at Roby High School.

In the last couple days, though, generous donors have given 10 pigs to the program.

Roby High School agriculture teacher Riley Barnett said he's confident the students will get the four more pigs they need to meet the deadline for the state competition.

People in the Big Country and in Oklahoma have offered the additional pigs.
