Guinea Pig Became Father To 400 After Breaking Into Female Enclosure

A guinea pig in Hatton Country World in Warwickshire broke out of its enclosure at an animal sanctuary. He then mated with 100 females and is set to become a father to around 400 babies now. The staff noticed the exhausted father-to-be, now nicknamed Randy, had lost a little weight, but did not realize why until they discovered he was actually a male rodent being kept busy in the wrong pen.

The animal park is said to be home to 300 guinea pigs already. It is now set to get boom in their population within a few weeks.

Manager Richard Craddock said: “One of our male guinea pigs managed to find his way into the female enclosure and had a very good time by the looks of it.”

Staff are now looking to build an extension to the guinea pig farm to accommodate Randy’s huge brood.
