Hello! My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you with your question today.

It's long been thought that dogs can detect certain things in people, and over time, some scientists and trainers have trained dogs to detect everything from oncoming seizures to low blood sugar and even cancer.

So it's not hard to imagine that dogs can detect some kind of "evilness" in people. Whether they're picking up on a chemical that not-so-nice people give off, or if they're simply picking up on minute body language signals we don't know...but there are some people who turn out to be not very nice, that all animals steer clear of.

Do I think your ex is evil and the animals were picking up on that? It's hard to say...but if a baby pig doesn't like you, then there's something wrong.
