Punch drunk pig

Francis Bacon is a very naughty pig. Last March he was banned from the Conquering Hero pub in West Norwood for stealing pints and head-butting patrons.

The Vietnamese micro pig’s owners, landlords Vicky and Ian Taylor-Ross, noticed she was finishing off the dregs of customers’ glasses, head-butting punters under the tables and raiding the pub’s bar snack stocks.

On one occasion, Bacon snaffled a bag of dry-roasted nuts and, a little disturbingly, pork scratchings, which she has a particular liking for.

The Vietnamese pot-belly “doesn’t have a clue that pork scratchings are her relatives”, said Mrs Taylor-Ross, who described the pig as “just like a dog, only craftier” and a “loveable menace”.

Customers were known to give the four-year-old pig a sip of their beer, perhaps after she had head butted them under the table.

Mrs Taylor-Ross added: “We have had to put locks on the bar to stop her coming in and stealing crisps and scratchings.

“She has an incredible sense of smell. She eats a special dry feed for micro-pigs and eats all our vegetable peelings – as long as she’s not eating her relatives it’s OK.”
