Question China, Piglet born with monkey's face

Curious locals flocked to the home of owner Feng Changlin after news of the piglet spread in Fengzhang village, Xiping township.
"It's hideous. No one will be willing to buy it, and it scares the family to even look at it!" Feng told Oriental Today.
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.
Feng's wife said the monkey-faced piglet was one of five newborns of a sow which the family had raised for nine years.
"My God, it was so scary. I didn't known what it was. I was really frightened," she said.
"But our son likes to play with it, and he stopped us from getting rid of it. He even feeds it milk."
Neighbours have suggested the couple keep the piglet to see how it looks as it matures.


i feel bad for it.

Typical humans...

I dont see a monkey face, just a poor piglet that is badly deformed, and the power of suggestion at work.

A..

There is beauty, even in deformity.

I'm thinking of Sloth and the character in "Mask" as examples of how deformity can be beautiful.

At least it will probably be spared and shown to people as a kind of attraction.

It's threads like this that make me question whether this forum is just the Sun online.

Aussies tell stories about Kiwis and sheep. I guess we'll now hear stories about Chinese and pigs.
