Visitors were delighted to see a large pig seemingly groveling in front of a temple in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province this week.
People gathered around to take a picture of the prostrating pig, some believing that it was seeking protection from Buddha. It apparently kneeled on the ground for a good while before a monk came from the temple and chanted sutras for it.
The likely reason behind the pictures, however, is much less cute and actually kind of sad. One web user said the hog is probably suffering from nutritional myopathy as a result of Vitamin E deficiency and has trouble standing on its own.
