This Might Look Like An Ordinary Pig But It Isn't

Everyone knows that bacon and other pork products aren’t the healthiest of foods, however, a pig that was recently hunted in California is a whole different story.

One Redditor claims that he was at his in-laws home on a ranch in Morgan Hill when they saw the pig on the property. They thought it was just a regular pig, but they were very wrong. There was nothing ordinary about this pig.

According to Mad World News, they discovered what was different about the pig after they shot him and cut him open.

“They thought it (was) a normal pig until they cut it open.” the Redditor said.

They drained the blood from the pig and brought it back home to prepare the meat. They cut into his flesh and saw an electric blue color peering out of it. After opening it up more, they noticed that the pig’s fat was blue. And they had no idea why. The meat was a normal color, but its fat was somehow dyed.

“I know blue pigmentation is often caused from copper poisoning but all that they have are some old mercury mine shafts that they have filled in,” the Redditor said. “They have also shot wild pigs on the ranch before and none of them have been blue.”

Others who commented on his post agreed that the pig definitely ate something weird. Some guessed “water from a local food or candy factory making blue dyes for their food,” while others suggest that he may have eaten squirrel poison. The family sent samples to the University of California Davis for testing.

Would you eat bacon from a blue pig?
