Photos of a deformed piglet – went viral, attracting visitors and bids for the animal.
A farmer says he was besieged with cash offers for a deformed piglet with “Human Face and Penis-like Forehead”after photos of the newborn ‘mutant’ went viral.
Friends and neighbors of Tao Lu then rushed to his property in Yanan township in the city of Nanning, China, after news of the deformed pig spread. And when a local newspaper published pictures of the bizarre-looking animal, several people contacted Tao, offering to buy it.
The mother pig birthed a litter of 19 babies, 18 of which were born healthy.
It was a large litter and the mutant was one of the last of 19 piglets to be born. All the others were normal, just this one was really bizarre. It is a shame it died, I could have got more money for it than for the rest of the family put together based on what people were offering me on the phone.”
The poor piglet had suffered massive birth defects in the form of severe craniofacial deformities. The poor piglet’s snout is pointed, the eyes are misshaped, and there is an odd protrusion coming from the forehead, which unfortunately resembles a penis.
The farmer said he had intended to put the pig on display to attract visitors. But sadly, his plan never happened. As the poor piglet died after only a couple of days as it has been rejected by its mother and refused to be fed from a bottle.
One person who saw the animal was, Wu Kung, and said:
I was one of a dozen people who went there to see the piglet and it really did have human face and exactly like he said, a penis growing out of its forehead.”
