Straaaaange cases: A Bay of Actual Pigs

OK, so this is not a legal case, but it is strange, so it sort of qualifies for inclusion in our series. Yes, there is a bay where pigs rule the beach.


Major Cay, or “Pig Beach” as it’s locally known, is an uninhabited island except for about 20 pigs that lounge around the beach and swim in the clear waters of the Bahamas.


There is a mystery here — pigs do not normally live on beaches. In warm climates, pigs wallow in mud as a way of protecting their skin from UV rays. Various theories persist as to how the happy pigs found themselves living a life of tropical luxury. They appeared as recently as 2001, so there must be someone out there that knows the truth.



We now know that we live in a time when pigs swim.
When they fly, I suspect, all will be revealed.
