Diving pigs fad takes hold in China

A farmer's crazy idea to give his pigs something to do to alleviate boredom by teaching them to dive has now become one of the latest fads in China.

Pig farmer Huang Demin, 32, of Ningxiang county, Hunan province, discovered that giving the pigs a fun reason to exercise made them happier - and tastier.

And now his idea for improving the lives of his pigs has been turned into visitor attractions at several places around China, such as this recreational park in Donglu near Wenchang City.

The larger pigs dive from heights of up to five metres, while the smaller animals jump from a one or three metre board.

And visitors cannot seem to get enough of the daily spectacle on the purpose-built pig diving boards.
