A pig goes for a dip on Pig Beach
A pig goes for a swim in the crystal clear waters off the island of Big Major Spot in the Bahamas.

Known locally as 'Pig Beach', the waterfront sees brown and pink feral pigs and piglets taking a dip in the waters, and being fed by locals as they trot along the tropical beach.

After lounging in the sun the piglets run into the water, and even sometimes swim out to incoming boats. (Metro)
