I guess I'd be a bit upset as well, but I'm also shocked. We have 2 local livestock auctions and neither one of them would sell injured stock, and anyone leaving a newborn litter out like that would probably be run off the property by the farmers before the management could even get to it.
You can sell anything from a single chicken to a dairy herd, but if it shows up there it better be healthy and unharmed. We all know that injuries can occur during loading and unloading, but sick or wounded animals aren't welcome. If you bring 5 pigs and have one at home with a wound, they'll sell it on your word, but don't show up with it at the auction.
Then again once you unload them into the stall, or park the trailer, it's best to consider them income, not pets.
