Ruixing, Zhejiang Province, China -

The pig weighed a ton.  Literally. It avoided slaughter as a young Hoover, apparently saved by Buddhist Priests.  "King Pig" was revered by all in his life.  I quote this article which reads: "He was a lovely beast who had a very gentle manner. People would consult him about their problems or worries and always went away happy."  And now, in death, what's the best way to honor the pig?  Some villagers want him stuffed and mounted so they can pay their respects forever.
