Swimming Pigs In Bahamas


 These amazing pigs swim every day in the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas – on their own tiny island where they live in luxury. They show off their piggy-paddle to visitors who flock to their beach to see the extraordinary site of wild pigs making a splash in the beautiful azure sea. Pig Island, or Big Major Cay as it is officially known, is blessed with a natural water spring and is sheltered by a string of neighbouring islands that protects it from waves caused by tropical storms. 

The pigs are thought to have been introduced to the island by passing sailors who may have thought they would make a good food source.
However, the sailors never returned and now all the lucky porkers have to worry about is where their next meal is coming from. The clever pigs have worked out that the crews of passing yachts regularly dump excess food into the sea. Info source

This video is really great too. But in the end I saw “Thumps up for bacon” and I hope it was a joke because animals are friends, not food. Enjoy
