This little piggy will not be going to market

[quote= http://metro.co.uk/2014/06/06/pig-escapes-slaughterhouse-truck-in-guangxi-china-4752625/]The sow, who has since been nicknamed Babe, after the Hollywood film, was captured jumping 16ft to freedom in south China.
A witness said the pig climbed over the backs of her fellow porkers before leaping out of the slaughterhouse van.

Re: This little piggy will not be going to market

That explains why she was placed in Police protection Smiley
I thought it was because of this excerpt

‘If we hadn’t have got to her he would have undoubtedly found himself at the end of a blade wielded by a local who would have enjoyed pork for days to come.’

No it seems different Tongue

Babe is being kept at the police station and is living happily in a pen usually reserved for a police dog.

Pen =====> Cage =====> locked up =====> loss of freedom

Re: This little piggy will not be going to market

Quite handy to have your camera trained on the back of a lorry load of pigs, and be ready for a shot, when a pig decides to "jump ship"  Cheesy 
Possibly a "photoshop" story to fatten up the profits  Cheesy
