Locals from Barraca, Ilocos Norte have found a new source of entertainment-- a 15-day-old piglet that walks using only its two front legs.
A video uploaded on Facebook showed how the piglet was able to walk with its two feet, just like how chickens walk. At first, the piglet seemed to be struggling, finding its balance using its snout
At first, the piglet seemed to be struggling, finding its balance using its snout. But later on, the piglet amazingly walked in an effortless manner and travelled around the lot, joining some chickens and ducks.
According to reports, the pig is actually healthy, however, it has a condition called "bipedalism" which is caused by abnormal fetal development due to inbreeding, chemical, mechanical, or mutation.
Some netizens were amazed by how the piglet uses only two legs while others were concerned about its condition, especially when it starts growing and gaining more weight. Here are some of the Facebook reactions:
Roger Deluta: “Akalain mo nga naman, nakagisnan na nya kasi na ganyan siya Kaya natuto siyang maglakad sa dalawang paa lang niya.”
Mhie Delrosario: “Nakakatuwa naman cya alagaan nyo na lang wag nyo katayin nakakaawa naman”
Alicia Lippner: “Puede namang gumawa ng paraan para di siya mahirapan lumakad ay gumawa ng dalawang wheels at i attach sa kanyang katawan..kahit na wheels ng laruan puede yun..sana tulungan ang piglet para di na siya mahirapan lumakad.”
Mjp Fabricante: “pag lumaki nayan baka mahirapan na.kc mabigat na siya.”
