Poem to the Special Pig Called ‘Firm and Strong’ (坚强 – Jian Qiang).
Two back legs missing since birth is an innate disability.
Trying to walk was like experiencing a living death.
As such – Jian Qiang – received a special love and affection.
His great and noble determination was known far and wide throughout society.
In Mengcheng County, Anhui province, at a place called Stone Mountain Village,(which is part of the Wangji Township), Ge Xin Ping (葛新平) raises pigs for a living. He says that in July of this year (2011), a pig was born with no hind legs. This pig was unusual as he learned to walk only on its front two legs – looking like an acrobat – and people came from far around to see him. Local people named him ‘Firm and Strong’. Through careful looking after, this pig has now grown to over 30 kilos in weight – even without his hind legs. He now lives in his own living space and will be looked after for the rest of his natural life.
