Pig Eats 2-Year-Old, Story Gets Worse

A two-year-old was mauled to death by a mother pig protecting her piglets after the child crawled into a pig pen in China’s eastern Jiangsu Province.

Wei Tsao, or Keke, was playing in the garden on his own when he ventured into the pen where a sow attacked and began eating the child. They heard their child scream and ran outside, but it was too late.

“'We had popped inside for just a couple of minutes when we heard the screams,” the child’s distraught father Sun Tsai, 25, told MailOnline. “When we came out we saw the pig about 80 metres away gnawing on Keke's head.”

Villagers helped grab the pig and tie it to a tree. The pig was killed and its stomach was cut open where parts of the child’s skull and hair were found.

“This is a horrible tragedy,” Village Leader Cheng Yuan, 62, told MailOnline. “We had to cut the pig open, not as an act of revenge but to prove to the authorities that it had indeed killed and eaten Keke.”

Pigs are considered to be docile, but pregnant pigs or ones that have just given birth can become aggressive if they perceive a threat to their piglets.

“We urge farmers to keep their pigs in their pens” said Yuan.
