That animal's owner, pig farmer Jing Guanglan, decided the birth of that little piggy was a good luck sign; he chose to embrace its birth by classing the creature as a good luck charm and money-maker.
Just how he decided on the good luck is not clear. It could be a lucky break for the pig though who may escape a deadly kitchen fate.
However the two-headed pig was more like a conjoined creature and struggled to survive from day one.
Guanglan however could only see the poor creature as a cash creator that would attract publicity at a price.
Sadly deformed creatures are popular in Chin and can be big money-spinners although their lifespan tends to be brief.
According to the Daily Mirror "Experts say the male piglet has a rare genetic defect that only affects one in 100,000."
Its owner ignored the fact that the poor creature could hardly move about as its two-heads are such a weight. The two-headed pig was born with four eyes and two snouts.
Are these strange mutant animal births specific to China? If so could it be down to how they are raised and fed? If so what does that tell us about the creatures that appear normal and survive before being killed for food across the world?
After all, we are what we eat!
