Four legs good, two legs better ...........

An amazing two-legged pig has become a local celebrity in China.


The 10-month-old pig, known by villagers as "Zhu Jianqiang"(Strong-willed Pig), was born with only two front legs, which it now uses towalk on. According to owner Wang Xihai, Zhu Jianqiang was one of nine pigletsborn in a litter this January.

He recalls: "My wife asked me to dump it but I refused as it's a life. Ithought I should give it a chance to survive and unexpectedly it survivedhealthily."

Several days after Zhu's birth Wang decided to train the two-legged piglet towalk by lifting it up by its tail. "I trained her a while each day.

After 30 days she can agilely walk upside down." Wang said since the birthof the pig, which currently weighs 50kg (110lbs), his home is besieged byvisitors everyday. A circus even offered a high price for the pig, but Wangrefused to sell.

He said "She proved to us that no matter what form life is it shouldcontinue to live on. I won't sell it no matter how much the offer is".

Farmer Cui Jinxiu, from Laizhou in northern China's Shandong province, said thelamb was one of two born in June 2010.
