Chasing fun for the Year of the Pig

A pig race staged in China’s southern province of Guizhou province during the recent Lunar New Year holiday was anything but predictable. The contest involved three piglets who were not exactly the best “sports” despite enthusiastic cheers from their “fans”. Despite the dubious outcome of the race, the contest put many into a festive mood for the Year of the Pig. Many villagers in the area have also been winning a race against poverty in recent years because of the success of pig breeding.
