Few words can be said to introduce our next story – so we’ll keep it short. The animal you are about see was supposed to be a piglet but it looks more like a monkey- or a cross between the two. That’s right – 2 months ago a pig in Calcutta Village had piglets. One of them was born with the body of a pig and the head of what right now is anyone’s guess. It died two days later and so did the mother but the owners have preserved the strange piglet’s body and called us to see it today. Kissie Staine told us about the perplexing piglet that belonged to her brother.

Keith Swift,
What are we looking at?

Kissie Staine,
“A pig with a monkey head. To me it looks more like a howler monkey. I don’t know cause I am not really a specialist in monkeys or so but it is a monkey head and it is a pig within a pig body. People need to see something like this because just telling them about this they won’t believe. I didn’t believe but then look at that. To me I think it is a curse. I think people should see it and we were trying to get in contact with the zoo because I said we have a lot of tourists and that would attract tourists to Belize because seeing the news and watching Discovery Channel I have never yet see something like this.”

Keith Swift,
What does your brother plan to do with it?

Kissie Staine,
“Well he was planning to see if he could sell it as maybe a tourist attraction or something. We would like to know why that happened like that because if this could happen in Belize then maybe eventually we will have babies, maybe we will have babies being born like this.”

They are hoping to sell the piglet which has been embalmed or at the least get a professional’s opinion on the strange freak of nature.

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

Someone's been reading, and taking pages from, supermarket tabloids. They must have found a howler head (usually not eaten by predators) and attached it to a fetal pig!

Its the work of a Chupacabra
rumored to inhabit Belize rural areas. Most biologists and wildlife management officials view the Chupacabra as an urban legend but now inquiring minds have photographic proof.

Vet examined the piglett and said it's a birth deformity.
