Default "Pig Curling"....

https://www.yahoo.com/autos/sportsme...192607966.html
==
In a way...... This is funny as all get out.....
Pigs trying to cross the ice from an island to a mainland.. I believe pigs can swim, but not sure how well, or how far...
==
On the serious side...
Many animals are lost through the ice... That is a fact of nature..

Many times people interfere with animals in water... Some times it is a legitimate rescue.. Some times in is interference with an animal that is an accomplished swimmer and sometimes results in the loss of animals due to this interference...
Best advice is to leave an animal alone... Unless it is in obvious trouble or danger... Then it is best to leave it alone rather than risk your own safety in the process...
===
I do imagine, once off there feet the pigs do slide pretty well....
Curling is a big time indoor winter sport here in the far frozen north land..

Take care..

It looks like fun. Maybe they're on to something there. Does the loser provide dinner?

I thought this was going to be about bacon curling in the skillet.
