Not too long ago, a news story that left social media users shook went viral. Suffice to say, this unusual piglet's birth, at least temporarily, distracted the Internet from the COVID-19 crisis.
This viral video, which was recorded in the Philippines but has already travelled around the world, shows a mammal born with a very rare and shocking birth defect. It's a piglet with two heads and three eyes.
The video was posted on Facebook by the Thai family who decided to adopt and take care of it. The little pig has been dubbed "Co-Pig," as it was born in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.
It was born on a farm in Nong Bua Lamphu, northeast of Thailand. A farmer noticed that one of his newborn pigs had a birth defect.
Seeing that the animal had a lot of difficulty eating, he decided to take it home to give it more specialized care.
His kindness made Internet users' heart melt. Both the farmer and his family take very good care of their new pet, despite their knowledge of all the difficulties that its care can entail.
