The Australian Pig That Thinks It’s An Elephant

by | 24th, September 2008

“IT’S a beautiful male pig but he’s just so big and so pushy,” Caroline Hayes tells the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

The rangers came out to my house yesterday with a dog cage and this pig is that big, it’s like trying to put an elephant in a dog cage.”

Is it? You make you own entertainment in rural Australia. Go on:

“They tried for a little while and they couldn’t do it. They got him halfway in and he just backed off and went back to my dam, where he was having a lovely time in the water.”

“It started getting very pushy, started pushing me around, so I started to get a bit frightened, until the stage that it started knocking on my door at four o’clock in the morning, actually head-butting my door.”

No, not her husband…

Ranger Len Hing, who visited the scene, explained that Bruce’s considerable size makes him difficult to control. “He is a bald pig, about 80 kilos” he said.

…the pig:

“This morning, I wanted to go to my toilet, which is outside. I opened up the door and the pig pushed me that hard, it pushed me back into my room, where I fell over.”

“I picked up a broom and poked him out with it and he snapped it in half with his mouth.”

The rangers are going to have another go at capturing Bruce the pig.
