Giddy Up Miss Piggy! Chinese Farmer Rears Enormous 94 Stone Pig For Food, But She's So Big He Decided To Ride Her Like A Horse
A Chinese farmer was pictured riding around Zhangjiakou, north-east China, on top of an enormous pig.
Farmer Zhang Xianping has been rearing pigs for food for the past six years, reported People's Daily Online.
However, when one prized pig reached a staggering 94 stone in weight, the farmer decided to keep her as a pet and ride her around the city.
Prized: Zhang has been rearing pigs for food for six years but decided to save his heaviest pig from slaughter
The porker is just two years old but has already managed to grow to three feet in height and five feet in length.
It is the biggest pig that Zhang has ever managed to rear in his six years as a pig farmer.
Zhang claims that this pig was raised in the exact same way as all his other pigs.
As a result, the farmer has decided to save this pig from the slaughter and treat it as a pet instead.
The pig is completely unafraid of humans and even allows Zhang to ride it like a horse.
He is reportedly frequently seen riding the pig round his home town.
This pig is far from the world's heaviest pig, however.
The heaviest recorded pig ever was reportedly Poland China breed called Big Bill from Tennessee, USA.
It weighed a hefty 182 stone and was five foot tall and nine feet long.
