Palm-Sized Piglets

March 4, 2008 at 8:38 pm (frightening things)

English farmer Chris Murray is breeding tiny piglets and selling them as pets. Tiny, tiny piglets–some the size of tea cups, apparently. I’ve always yearned for a pet friend of my very own, and my heart aches at the sheer cuteness…but I dunno, I’m a bit weirded out by this modification. Are the piglets…healthy? Real, even?

Okay, back to mindlessly adoring those adorable pictures. Awwww!

    Definitely a question worth asking. I for one find it downright evil how malformed certain breeds of dogs are. Of course on the other hand, there is a tremendous variety of dogs and many of them are well-formed. So it’s definitely possible to breed an animal like this without doing harm.

    Definitely a serious possibility that something unethical is going on. I hope the piglets are healthy.

    They are overwhelmingly cute, though. Awww

    all important questions… but before we figure out those answers, we need to figure out how to breed a giraffe like this
