Swimming Pigs Share Tourist Beaches In The Bahamas
We promise, we're not making this up.
Located in the Bahamas is an island officially known as Big Major Cay (or rather Pig Island to the locals and tourists) and aside from it being a picturesque scene straight from a postcard, it's also home to a community of wild pigs. They're so accustomed to seeing tourists that they are actually quite tame, willing swimming around the crystal clear waters and posing for photos and hoping for food as little rowing boats and yachts drift past to capture the spectacle.
But how on earth did they get there? There's a few different theories, one is that they were initially brought to the island by sailors who had intended to come back and eat them after their adventures on the high seas. Yet the sailors never returned leaving the pigs numbers to grow and multiply. There's numerous other high tales as well, one being that the pigs themselves being part of a shipwreck and washed ashore.
Despite the conflicting stories about how they arrived in paradise, they are there to stay. Love by locals and adored by tourists, Pig Island truly is the perfect paradise for any little piglet.
