The smartest person in England has bred a new kind of pet pig, one that fits in the palm of your hand! Chris Murray’s Pennywell Miniature pigs recently gave birth to eight piglets at his farm in Devon. According to this article on abcnews.com, Murray wanted a kind of pig “that children can enjoy giving…a cuddle.” Hmm….creepy.
This is where the meat for those tiny little sandwiches they serve at tea time comes from…
Anyhoo, Murray is trying to sell them in pairs so they always have a companion and claims that they are easy to house train. He just sold a couple to some British celebrity that we’ve never heard of at about $150 US (1.5 UK Pounds) a pop.
The little porkers can live up to 14 years
How long until Paris Hilton has one of her own? Tiny pigs…that’s hot.
Special thanks to Mark “the Stork” Devito for bringing this to our attention.
