Mutant piglet with ‘elephant trunk’ born (Video)

A PIGLET born with a deformed head has caused a stir in the Thai province of Nakhon Phanom. The bizarre-looking genetic mutation had the baby pig looking like it had an elephant trunk.

The trunk-like appendage on its head rendered it unable to suckle its mother. Local residents had to bottle feed the piglet, according to Daily Mirror recently.

A farmer said the piglet was too weak to reach his mother. "He came out of the womb deformed or handicapped and looks like a little elephant. He doesn't know it though, I feel so sorry for him," he said.
