Lady's Baby 'Micropig' Turns Into Huge 200-Pound Porker

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A woman in eastern England says she has learned to love the giant porker she bought as a piglet believing it to be a micropig.

Meeka now weighs upward of 200 pounds, The Sun reported. Janey Byrne of Laughteron, Lincolnshire, said the breeder told her the pig when full-grown would be the size of a springer spaniel and weigh in at no more than 30 pounds.


The pig is 5 feet long and stands 2 1/2 feet high."


Micropigs are real cute and cuddly, but if you try cuddling with Meeka she might smother you to death.

Janey bought what she thought was a micropig, it turned out to be a behemoth, but she`s making the best out of the situation. This is a classic case of making lemonade out of lemons. But most folks in Janey`s situation would make bacon, pork chops, and sausage out of the pig.

Janey and her husband let the pig have the run of the house, the huge porker snuggles with them on the sofa while they watch TV. If I got a huge porker as a gift, I would put it in the backyard, slowly roasting in a huge bbq pit.

The gigantic pig is literally eating them out of house and home, the couple spends $300 a month feeding the hungry pig.

I commend the couple for making accommodations for the pig, and showing it love and affection.
