Elderly Chongqing man rides hogzilla through town, becomes famous


A 68-year-old pig farmer in Chongqing has been drawing attention from local residents (rightly so) for casually cruising through the streets on a gigantic, some might say terrifying, hog ever since he became too sick to take long walks.


Jiang Chengyou, of the Huilong village in Dianjiang county, has been described as a “local celebrity” for his alternative transportation choice, a huge three-year-old swine which weighs more than 250 kilograms and is almost 90 centimeters tall, according to Chongqing Evening News.


Jiang has been a pig farmer for the past 30 years, and had the idea to ride the hog a few months back as he suffered a bout of bronchitis.

“Riding my pig saves me a lot of energy and is also quite fun,” Jiang said.
