The pig in the photo above really, really, really didn't want to get turned into bacon. So last week, while the pig was being transported from a farm in China to its final destination, it decided to try and make a run for it. It managed to weasel its way up to the top of a truck and jump out of it while it was driving down a highway. And somehow, it was 100 percent unharmed after making the jump.

However, this story doesn't have a happy ending. Even though the pig escaped the truck, it didn't escape the watchful eye of the truck's driver, who pulled over shortly after seeing the pig jump to freedom and eventually captured the pig and put it back into the truck. It was a brave, courageous move on the pig's part but, ultimately, it didn't lead to a better life.

Skip the bacon this weekend in memory of this little fella.
