Zhu, the strong-willed Pig

IN HENAN province of China, there is a wonderful pig which has attracted people far and wide because of its willpower to live and its balancing power to stand on its 2 front legs. By fate or by nature there’s nothing on its hind. She’s a freak, an unusual creature.

2-legged pig Zhu attends celebrity status

She’s now one year old having been born January of last year in a brood of 9 piglets. Born female, she has attained celebrity status attracting locals, visitors and tourists alike to see her perform balancing acts of standing horizontally, upright and upside down on her front feet. Best show time for Zhu which is her name is during mealtime.

Zhu gains followers in the net and social media

Zhu which means strong-willed pig and her amazing story has attracted readers and followers in the internet, twitter and facebook, etc

Zhu was given a chance to live

Her struggle for a place in the sun is quite a feat. She was almost condemned but for the soft-hearted farmer-owner, Zhu was given a lease in life. Wang Xihai- the owner- decided to do something to help the pitiful piglet. He felt the piglet was life and it must be given a chance to live.

Zhu was taught to walk on her front legs

Days passed and thinking that the time was ripe, Wang Xihai began to teach her to walk on her front legs by holding her up by her tail

Zhu learned all tricks taught to her

After months of trial and error, Zhu, the strong-willed pig, could walk and carry the weight of her body on her front legs. Eventually she could do acts such as walking horizontally, walking upright and upside down on her front legs and these antics have brought delight, hope and inspiration to her admirers.
