However, after lots of time and devotion the pig has learnt how to walk on its forelegs and is now the talk of the town.

‘Villagers all love it as it walks like an upside down gymnast,’ Ge said.
Elsewhere in China, pig breeders are not having such luck.
More than 100 people in the Henan province have been sentenced for planning to contaminate pork with the drug, Clenbuterol, which makes the meat leaner but can have adverse affects on humans.
Known in China as ‘lean meat powder’, Clenbuterol continues to be laced into animal feed by farmers desperate to get their meat to market even though it is banned in the country.

A subsidiary of Shuanghui Group, China’s largest meat processor, was also found to be selling the tainted pork.
Ringleader, Liu Xiang, was sentenced to death.
