These “thrill-seeking pigs” are having a splashing time and their acrobatics attract visitors from far and wide for their “daily plunge” into a pond in south China’s Ningxiang county.
Huang Demin, who runs the farm in Guanshan village, claims the “diving” make the pigs “healthier” and their pork “taste” better. It also makes him “happier” as he says he can charge “three times as much” for his meat as a result of their “fitness regime.”
He admits some of his animals don’t seem to “enjoy the experience” and he has to “push them hard” to jump from the 3 meter platform. But at least it brings “home the bacon.”
When they are done for the day Huang Demin herds his animals back to their pen after the “water acrobatics.”
At last, pigs do fly!
