These Pictures Of A Pig Born With A Monkey’s Face Have Gone Viral


Images  of a piglet born with the head of a monkey viral on social media, as viewers branded the strange creature ‘a monkey pig’.

Sadly, the piglet died just four days after it was born.

A video of the pig showed its owner holding it up in his arms as a crowd gathered around to look at it in the city of Ciego de Avila in central Cuba.These Pictures Of A Pig Born With A Monkey's Face Have Gone Viral 1

According to local media, the owner visited a vet, who explained that the piglet had been born with a congenital defect which caused its look – and its death.

It is not the first time that a porcine creature has come into the world looking like it belongs in a jungle, with deformed pigs being reported from South America through to China.

Whatever the reason, the monkey-piglet quickly became something of a local tourist attraction, with people coming from across the area to photograph its remarkable features before it died.


Despite what the vet said, I still believe stress is part of what killed the animal.  Just look at the people harassing the poor animal…
