Big ham: Not the mini-pig owners expected, 300kg Esther wins Facebook hearts

She is a web celebrity, with many of her admirers becoming vegetarians – meet Esther, the 300kg pig who will win your heart. Her owners once thought she was a mini-pig, but finally they got it that there is hardly anything mini about her.

Esther’s owners - Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter - told RT how they got her three years ago, and she was supposed to grow into a mini-pig, about 70lb (30kg).

“We thought we were just getting a cute little pet pig,” Steve and Derek said.

The owners added that they were “totally in denial” when she began to grow.

“We were hoping she wouldn’t get as big as she is now, were on a quite a rollercoaster ride. But at 200lb, we realized that she is a full-size commercial pig.”

Apart from being a major internet celebrity, Esther is “very interesting to watch,” as she perhaps doesn’t realize that she’s a pig.

“She gets along with the dogs and the cats in the house,” Steve and Derek told RT.
