Mr Xie had a boar, and Mr Luo has a sow. Xie and Luo are
neighbours, and the boar and the sow were lovers. For a
while the life was good, until Valentine’s Day.
On 14 February, the boar was brought to be under Mr Xie’s
knife. Mister pig was not informed of his fate beforehand
so he didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to his girlfriend.
He struggled and screamed in desperation.
The lady pig was enjoying sunbaking with her piglets when
she heard the shriek of her lover. She dashed towards the
scene and toppled Mr Xie with her massive body weight of
over 300 kilos.
The compassionate lover was quickly driven away by the
neighbours rushed to Xie’s rescue and locked up in the
pigpen ever since. But Mr Xie paid a terrible price for
intending to separate a couple on the Valentine’s Day.
He underwent surgery after suffering several broken ribs
and has been disabled for field work.
As for the boar, he was freed by his sweetheart, for a
short while only. Later that day he was executed by Mr
Bad luck for Xie’s neighbour Luo who is ordered to pay
800 yuans to cover part of Xie’s medical bill. Mr Luo isn’t
happy about that. 子不教父之过, true, but the sow isn’t my child
and I was never asked to teach her proper manners, why
should I be punished for her bad behaviour! - He complained
to the journalist who interviewed him.
When the story spread across China’s cyberspace, tributes
poured in praising the remarkable love and passion between
two pigs. Below are some of the lines:
