First up, this story is no porkie (sorry, but you knew a pun was coming, so let's just get it out of the way).

A pig in China has become an internet sensation after being rescued from a flood.

The image, which sees the animal looking as if it's grinning after being saved by two men, was taken in Yibin County, Sichuan Province.

Residents evacuated the area after heavy storms battered the area, but the little pig was left stranded.

The photo shows two men, dressed in green uniforms, each holding an ear each and front leg of the pig.

The picture, initially posted on Chinese social media, now seems to have become a Photoshop battle - all because of his smiling face.

There were pig-related ones....

Face-swap ones...

And of course, some turned it dark...

Comments on the original Weibo post didn't make for happy reading either. One user wrote: "It might be smiling on its face, but it's cursing in its heart."

Another added: "The pig thought it was saved, but it wouldn't escape the fate of being killed."

While a third said: "The men weren't saving the pig. They just wanted to eat the pig."


What happened to the pig once he was dragged to safety is unknown but we can only hope he still has that smile on his face.
