An ad in the classifieds section of yesterday's News has gone global and was featured on the Today Show this morning. The owner of two pigs is hoping they become someone's pets.
Pig seller David Krbavac would rather his two pigs become pets than salami.
David, 30, advertised his brother's pigs for sale in the Shepparton News yesterday for “salami or pet”.
He told us today the two, one-year-old pigs had become pets after they were bought about 12 months ago and now they were getting too big and too hungry.
News journalist Darren Linton tweeted a photo of the ad yesterday and it was retweeted by award-winning journalist and Nine News sports guru Tony Jones, as well as a rapper from Chicago. It was picked up by the Today Show this morning.
Despite the Tweet about the for sale advert going around the world, David said they’ve had only four or five inquiries and they weren’t sold yet.
“I don’t like animals to be killed, so I hope someone will take them as pets,’’ David said.
