Monument to a pig

A monument to a pig has been unveiled in a Russian region famous for its sausages.

Nikolay Astanin, general director of the local meat industry in Kalach, close to the south western city of Voronezh, said: “We wanted to thank this wonderful animal for all it has given to the area.” The giant meat processing plants in Kalach were opened this week 80 years ago.

The monument in Kalach is Russia’s first dedicated to a pig.
