When pigs swim

Shonda Taliaferro spotted this charming pig on the Delta the other day.

And where else could it possibly happen, of course, but Hog/Spud Island?

“Between Windmill Cove and Lost Isle on the north side of the bank,” Shonda told me on Twitter. “Piglets too!”

“I think she lives there,” Shonda added. “There is another adult male that we saw on the Fourth but got no pics.”

This city boy knows nothing about pigs. But I’ve been to Hog/Spud Island and there ain’t nothin’ out there. Can someone guess where this pig came from, and why it’s so fond of swimming in the river?

(Perhaps the dude tossing food into the water can answer that question…)
