These Pigs Glow In The Dark To Save Our Lives!

glowing piggies china

Plus, they look pretty badass… in the most ADORABLE WAY POSSIBLE!

Ten glow-in-the-dark piglets have been born this year in China, and it wasn't by accident — they are the result of an experiment at the South China Agriculture University! They've been tweaked by injecting a fluorescent protein from jellyfish DNA into the pig embryos.

Sounds… fun?

The good news is that the animals were NOT hurt by the process and besides the glowin' they're normal-ass pigs!

So what's the benefits of this?? To show that foreign genetic material can be incorporated from one animal to an entirely different animal! This means CHEAPER DRUGS FOR HUMANS!

Plus it's just cool! Ha!

Endangered Peccary Piglets Play At San Francisco Zoo

| Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredPig

A super cute litter of Chacoan Peccary piglets was born at San Francisco Zoo in early November.

They're not only super dooper cute, they're also endangered!

The little ones are growing and exploring their outdoor habitat, being super adorbz, leaping and running in circles, doing a behavior known as 'frisky hopping.'

They are so stupid cute we can barely handle it!

These poor animals are threatened by habitat loss and illegal hunting, though.

So glad SF Zoo is doing their part to help save these lil cuties!

Check out the video (above) to watch the adorbz guys running around!

James Cromwell Exposes Walmart Pig Cruelty!

| Filed under: Animal RightsPigDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

James Cromwell is a talented actor and a huge animal rights activist.

Hell, he's even been arrested during a cat abuse protest!

He's willing to put his freedom on the line for the animals! He's so great!

James narrates a GRAPHIC video of hidden camera footage from within a pig factory farm captured by a Mercy for Animals agent.

The pigs are subjected to beatings, violent medical procedures without pain killers, mama pigs stuck in gestation crates and more awful things.

This is where Walmart gets its pork.

So many other companies and even the entire European Union don't use gestation crates, but Walmart is heartless and awful.

Check out the video (above) to see this awful cruelty, but be aware it is very GRAPHIC!

A piglet escaped a truck that was heading to a slaughterhouse!

In Quebec, Canada, a truck full of pigs was heading to a slaughterhouse.

He wriggled his tiny body through a hole in the trailer and fell onto the highway, got up and ran away!

FREEDOM!!!

Drivers saw the whole ordeal and notified the cops.

An officer eventually found the piglet wandering along the road and called animal services.

After several animal lovers heard of the little piggy's daring escape, they eventually got him sent to the Wishing Well Sanctuary.

The sanctuary's owner took in the piglet, named him Yoda and said:
