Pulleyed pork: Chinese farmer invents harness system to ‘fly’ pigs from his truck
A Chinese pig farmer has invented an elaborate pulley and rope system that carries his animals through the air from one truck to another.
It is probably the most elaborate way to avoid employing another pair of hands in the rich history of pig farming.
But farmer Sying P’an said he was sick of having to chase pigs around when they made a bolt for freedom each time he tried walking them from truck to truck.
Now, with the aid of some ropes, pulleys and an uncomfortable-looking ‘harness’, he simply flies them though the air so their mischievous trotters don’t even touch the ground.
The 43-year-old regularly takes his pigs to market in Weinan, in north-western China’s Shaanxi province.
He said: ‘At every market a few escape artists would always cause me trouble and often I would never get them back.
‘You only have to lose a few and that makes the whole load a loss maker.’
So he came up with his contraption, based on the on the Navy’s bosun’s chair, which is used to ferry sailors from ship to ship while at sea.
He claims his pig puller is a hit with the local townsfolk, although the jury’s still out on whether the pigs find it as amusing.
He said: ‘I get a lot of people coming to the town when I am there just to see the pigs sailing through the air.
‘They’re all healthy and they land in good condition – they don’t seem to mind the journey when they see the other pigs are not harmed, pigs are smart animals.’
