Did you go searching for this or do you have a standard search set in google for "seriously ?"

Thats brilliant, as you say life imitates humour.

Question is - if the pig had been on a lead, would that have been OK ?

Not unless he had been approved by a Ministry vet, which includes said vet walking all the routes with the applicant for the "Pig walking License" and certainly on a lead at all times.

It was introduced in the wake of the Foot and Mouth epidemic, pigs spread the disease 10 fold increase compared to Bovines and Ovines is the thinking behind the lessons learnt at the time.

Still, not quite as eccentric as Gerard de Nerval who liked to walk his lobster on a blue ribbon in the Jardins de Luxembourg in Paris.

He reasoned “Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog? ...or a cat, or a gazelle, or a lion, or any other animal that one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don't bark, and they don't gnaw upon one's monadic privacy like dogs do. And Goethe had an aversion to dogs, and he wasn't mad”.

You make a strong case for the Lobster Giles.

Thank you for this story Giles. I didn't know lobsters could manage for long out of water - marvellous creatures.

It’s threads like this that were the actual reason I kept the Morgan!

Owner did not have the pig on a lead?
Obviously one of his rasher ideas!

Luckily he was fully clothed...could have been a streaky episode!
