Pig Escapes Slaughterhouse Fate, Sells Original Paintings

A pig who escaped slaughter is now living out her life in a South African sanctuary and painting original works that have sold for up to $2,000. "She was really small when I rescued her," said Joanne Lefson, who manages the South African Farm Sanctuary, a haven for rescued farm animals where the pig now lives. "She's very smart and intelligent so I placed a few balls and some paintbrushes and things in her pen, and it wasn't long before I discovered that she really liked the bristles and the paintbrush...She just really took a knack for it." Funds from the art sales go towards the sanctuary. Watch »
