A Chinese theme park is getting lots of furious complaints after a pig was pushed repeatedly from a 220-foot-plus platform as a publicity stunt for the park. The Meixin Red Wine Town theme park in Chongqing dressed the pig in a cape and tied up its feet before the event.
While the flying pig yelped in terror each time, heartless visitors cheered. Several hours later, the flying piggy was converted into pork chops, sausage and hamhocks. Of course, thousands of other pigs meet the same final fate daily throughout the world, but many animal advocates still are not happy that pigs fly for the amusement of heartless people.
