SWIMMING PIGS

Excuse me, can i take a pig?

 

Should you ever end up on an Island called Big Major Cay, this might be a legitimate question. During your daily swim you might encounter a special fish called Pig…because it is a pig. Yes dears, Welcome to the island of the swimming pigs,where you can swim with them, feed them and drizzle happiness and joy around the world, or at least in this specific spot. But why..or better HOW did the pigs end up on an island? According to wikipedia they are said to have been dropped off  by a group of sailors who wanted to come back and cook them. The sailors, though, never returned; the pigs survived on excess food dumped from passing ships. One other legend has it that the pigs were survivors of a shipwreck and managed to swim to shore, while another claims that the pigs had escaped from a nearby islet. Others suggest that the pigs were part of a business scheme to attract tourists to the Bahamas.

Today the piggies are fed by locals and tourists and honestly they seem to enjoy it, let’s  take a look at this load of happiness and pigginess and also-wanna-swim-with-them-ness !
