It’s truly as crazy as it sounds! These happy pigs swim all day around these islands and they absolutely love it. There couldn’t be anything better for these pigs then a cool and refreshing plunge into the incredible water each warm and sunny day on Big Major Cay island in the Bahamas.
I never knew that pigs enjoyed swimming this much until I saw the video below. It doesn’t seem possible, but it is. In fact these pigs are so famous for swimming and enjoying it, that locals frequently refer to the Island as Pig Beach or Pig Island. If it was me i’d call it “Happy Pig Harbor.”
Just look at these pigs, they are obviously enjoying themselves too much!
I don’t blame these pigs for choosing such a great place to swim. After all, who wouldn’t want to swim in such clean water and cool off from the heat?
Legend has it that these pigs were dropped off by some sailors. These sailors had planned on returning to cook them up for dinner, but forgot them. To this day, they have survived and thrived.
Locals also say that they could have survived so well because of excess food that is sometimes dumped off the ships. Maybe this explains their love and passion for the water?
Other legends claim these pigs were the only survivors of a nearby shipwreck, however the truth to where these pigs came from is still unknown. Perhaps these pigs were placed here as a business scheme to make money off tourists wanting to feed them. In any case, you won’t believe your eyes when you see how happy these pigs are in the video below. I still can’t believe it’s true!
