It's Mutton Dressed As Ham

A pig with its own fleeceMeet the world’s first sheep-hog — a pig with its own fleece. Scientists are baffled by the strange swine — which they say is a pig “at heart” but with a woolly hide.

The one-year-old is being raised on a ranch near the town of Esquina, 400 miles north of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It is a pig but has a thick fleece which needs shearing in summer with the other sheep because it suffers in the heat. Other pigs do not trust it.

Livestock expert Prof Hector Rebechisi said: “I examined it and if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I wouldn’t believe it. Hopefully we can do some tests to find out why it has a fleece.”

It reminded some of Spider-Pig from The Simpsons Movie — which was a porker adopted by Homer Simpson, who adapted the Spider-Man theme song in tribute.
