Pigs don’t exactly have a reputation for being the most intelligent animals. They’re smelly, dirty and will literally eat anything, trash included. They roll in mud, grunt and act like, well, pigs. After all, your mom didn’t call your bedroom a “pigsty” for nothing.
The fact is, though, they’re smarter than you think. Aside from famous fictional pigs like Wilbur from E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web or Universal Pictures’ Babe, there are also plenty of examples of brilliant pigs in real life as well. And then there’s the pregnant pig in this video. She was on her way to slaughterhouse when she did something incredibly clever and brave. Once you see it, you might have to rethink what you thought you knew about pigs.
