Swine escapes slaughter for growing incredibly fat

A sow weighing 600 kg grew so much larger than expected that it was kept for its owner to ride on instead of being slaughtered, reported on Wednesday. It's rare for a swine to reach over 500 kg.

Zhang Xianping, a farmer in Wanquan county, Zhangjiakou, Hebei province, raised a pig to about 600 kg. The swine is two years old, 1 meter tall and 1.5 meters long. It is the first swine that weighs over 500 kg in the village, so Zhang didn't send it to the slaughter house but walked it around or rode it in his leisure time.

Zhang said he didn't feed it with any special fodder.
