Pig wears mud boots


Cinders, a six-week-old piglet in North Yorks, England, is afraid of the dirt. So her owners outfitted her with a pair of tiny Wellington boots. Now she's as happy as a pig in, er, mud. From the BBC News:

"She's more of a pet really now and she's going to live a very long and happy life," said (the owner of the sausage farm where Cinders resides).

The young saddleback has been chosen by the (owners) as a mascot for their campaign to raise money for the Farm Crisis Network, which supports struggling farmers.
