Not Quite Babe

Villagers of the Fengzhang village, Xiping township of China were shocked after a monkey-like piglet was born.

The owner Feng Changlin said: "It's hideous. No one will be willing to buy it, and it scares the family to even look at it how are we supposed to eat it?"

He says the piglet looks just like a monkey, with two thin lips, a small nose and two big eyes. Its rear legs are also much longer than its forelegs, causing it to jump instead of walk and as pigs are quite clean animals it chucks it's poo rather than fling it.

"But our son likes to play with it, and he stopped us from getting rid of it. He even feeds it milk."

There is hope for the pig as Feng says when it gets bigger he will have it cured.
