Pot bellied pigs get married
As the Year of the Pig is approaching rapidly in many
Asian countries celebrations are set up. For that reason, a pig producer in
North East Taiwan arranged a marriage between two pot bellied
Farmer Shu Wen-chun had already started looking for a proper spouse for his
18 kilogramme animal in October last year. He finally found one, born in 2005.
"They will live together in happiness," he said.
Both animals wore
tailor made marriage garments during the wedding ceremony and were blessed by a
catholic priest. About 400 people were present to witness the ceremony â€“ even
paying about â‚¬3 per person to witness the events.
The money will be
spent on a project for handicapped children.
Two parrots were present
at the wedding too, being best men.
The year of the pig will start on
Sunday, February 18th.
