Falklands’ flying piglets land in wrong country

Five piglets that were being flown to the Falklands to refresh the island’s pig gene pool found themselves landing in Chile instead. Their flight was diverted because of snow, reports BBC News online.

The Falkland Islands vet, Zoe Luxton, flew from the UK with the “very laid-back” piglets.

Flight company director Jon Jeffery said: “They have now been on board for a while, but it’s nice and warm, they have lots of food, automatic drinking water, and two engineers have stayed in the hold to keep them company until we can take them off.”
