Wild pig more sedate after a smoke
Adjust font size:

A wild boar kept by a pig farm in Yichun, Heilongjiang province, has become addicted to cigarettes and routinely eats or passively smokes 7 to 8 a day.

Weng, its keeper, said that it was very difficult for him to tame the wild swine when it first arrived.

"However, it became obedient when I fed it and blew a smoke ring toward it one time. Since then, it became the best way to make it calm down."

Now the boar weighs more than 300 kg and likes to eat cigarettes or inhale their smoke.
