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.

两岁残疾小猪会两条腿练“走路”堪称猪坚强

自强不息

天生残疾缺俩退,

步履艰难活受罪。

因此特别受关爱,

身价大涨成新贵。

安徽蒙城县王集乡石山村葛新平是养猪专业户,据他介绍,这头出生于今年7月份的小猪,由于在出生时就没有后腿,平时只能依靠两条前腿行走,就好像技巧运动“拿大顶”一样,十分可爱,也吸引了乡邻们的“眼球”,并被当地群众称为“猪坚强”。目前,在葛新平的精心饲养下,小猪已有30多公斤,考虑到它没有后腿,前腿支撑力有限,葛新平还对它进行了单独饲养,让它快乐地生活。
