Pet Pig Raids Fridge for Scotch and Cola

Posted:

Walter the pig is a gentle giant but heaven help anyone who gets between the porker and a six-pack of scotch and cola, the Herald Sun reported Saturday.

The pet pig rips open the fridge door, pulls out the pack, sinks his fangs into the cans and then slurps the slops from the garage floor of his home in Creswick, an Australian town 80 miles (130km) northwest of Melbourne, Victoria.

With a burp and a belch, he hauls himself up on his leather sofa and snores off the alcohol for a bit.

Owner Gary Murnane doesn't like Walter drinking his grog, but there's not much he or wife Vicki can do as the lovable giant breaks into the house to get into the family fridge or food pantry.

"He's broken into the house more times than we can count and he'll grab everything he can reach in the pantry, including 5kg [11pound] bags of potatoes, all the fruit and vegies, and anything else on the lower shelves," Vicki Murnane said.

The Murnanes bought Walter as a "miniature" pig. Now he is 291 pounds (132kg) and still growing.
