Two-legged pig becomes major tourist attraction
The 10-month old piggy is somewhat of a celebrity and the local villagers have fondly named her â€˜Zhu Jianqiang.â€™
Zhu Jianqiang means strong-willed pig, in English, and it seems a rather apt name for such an incredible animal.
Young Zhu Jianqiang is lucky to be alive though. As a piglet in a nine strong litter, there were calls for the wee piggy to be put out of her misery.
Wang Xihai, the pigâ€™s owner, told the Telegraph: â€˜My wife asked me to dump it but I refused as it's a life. I thought I should give it a chance to survive and unexpectedly it survived healthy.â€™
Mr Xihaiâ€™s perseverance paid off and true to her name the piglet survived.
Several days after her birth, Wang decided to try and train the pig.
â€˜I trained her for a while each day. After 30 days she can now walk upside down quite wellâ€™, stated Wang.
Wang said since the birth of the pig, which currently weighs 50kg (110lbs) his home rarely is besieged by visitors everyday.
â€˜I won't sell it no matter how much the offer is,â€™ Wang said.
