Pig With Bizarre Mutation Born In The UK
After what seemed like the once in a lifetime birth of a pig with unusual deformities in China, a second pig with similar mutations has been born in the UK.
A farm in Aberdeen, Scotland, now has a piglet who also looks as if it has a human penis on his head.
When I went in this morning I seen it lying there and I immediately thought 'I've seen that in the paper', I wanted people to see that these things happen in Scotland too. It is very rare and no one here has ever seen anything like it before.
The piglet was part of a litter of ten and the rest were fine, it probably died at birth and wouldn't have been able to suckle from its mother. I don't know if the pig in China would have been alive at all, as it wouldn't have been able to feed. At any one time there can be 19 litters of piglets, so you do get some with deformities, but nothing like this. Farm stockman, Ian

The farm are inviting researchers and universities to get in touch with them if they wish to study the animal.
