A pig jumps off a moving vehicle and lands unscathed! A driver behind managed to catch all the action as a truck full of swines was being transported along a busy road.
This is the moment a captured pig made a desperate escape to freedom by flinging itself out of a moving truck.
The hog looked to be making a last ditch effort to save his bacon as he was transported by lorry in Foshan, southern China’s Guangdong Province.
As the swine began to scale the side of the vehicle, the driver behind was quick to capture the dramatic moment as it unfolded. It soon threw itself from the moving truck and swan dived to the concrete below.
After a do-or-die attempt at freedom, the swine escaped uninjured and eventually found his feet on the busy highway.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to avoid the chop, as the driver later recovered the wayward animal.
The sow, who has since been nicknamed Babe, after the Hollywood film, was captured jumping 16ft to freedom in south China.
You can’t blame the poor fella for trying.
Pigs seem to be getting braver and braver nowadays! A one-month-old piglet called Yoda also miraculously avoided the slaughterhouse and has found a new home in an animal sanctuary in Canada.
Yoda escaped his fate on the dinner plate when he fell off a truck that was taking him and other piglets to be readied for their eventual demise.
The animal had suffered scrapes and bruises from the fall, but was in good overall physical health.
Brenda Bronfman, the founder of Wishing Well Sanctuary in Bradford, Ontario, Yoda’s new home, said the pig was ’emotionally traumatized’ from the experience.
We know, we know. But hey, small miracles are newsworthy too!
