A pig in a poke? Nope. A pig in a pond.

A pig in China has started to catch fish from a pond for its supper.

Han, the pig’s owner, created a small pond for breeding tropical fish, at her home in Dahangou village, Zhenping. She gave up on the venture when the market price for the fish dropped – but found she still had one eager customer.

“I was amazed to see that the pig I raised is helping himself to fish from the pond,” she told the Eastern Asia Trade and Economic News. “It steps into the shallow water, catches fish in its mouth and happily eats them on the spot.”

See, the thing about hitting a snow plow is that they may not notice

A Colorado Department of Transportation plow driver rear-ended in a crash in Colorado City didn’t even realize he had been in an accident until nearby drivers flagged him down to stop.

That’s when the plow driver found out he was dragging the car that hit him.
