Solomon islands pig escapes barbecue

A group of bank employees from the Solomon Islands had a strange surprise during their recent annual barbecue.

The pig that was lying waiting to be roasted suddenly stood and walked off to look for food, the Dutch agricultural newspaper Agrarisch Dagblad reports. Everyone presumed that the animal had already been slaughtered.

The animal had been cut in the abdomen and neck but apparently not with a deadly effect. Most of the eaters refused to touch the pig. The group thought that the pig had supernatural powers. “the pig woke from the dead” explained a bank employee, “therefore, we may not eat it”.
