VietNamNet Bridge – Mini pigs are cute, but large pigs, well that's a different story. Large pigs have tusks, are territorial and defecate large amounts, none of which are qualities of a cute pet.

Unfortunately for many Vietnamese people in recent times, their once cute mini pigs have grown to be 100kg plus monstrosities in less than a year, only fit for the abattoir.
Recently, the social networks have been abuzz with the story of Ngo Hoai Yen, a girl living in the southern province of Binh Duong.
She believed an online salesman's assurance that the 2kg mini pig would always be cute and petite. Hoai Yen bought the mini pig but a year later, the pig was more than 100kg in weight.
Yen wanted a cute companion, but now she's stuck with an animal that makes living in her own house inconvenient.
The girl wrote the floor was slippery and the animal eats late at night or early in the morning and "screams for food."
I can think of one way to make this pig scream once more, not to demand food, but to beg not to be made into tasty bacon.
