Mouthless 'Elephant' Pig Born In China

Some people may be familiar with the South Park episode "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig." Rest assured that this unfortunate creature had nothing to do with that.

From the looks of its long snout, one might get the impression that this piglet is part elephant, but it isn't. The peculiar pig was born from a 550-pound sow earlier this month in Northeastern China. Sadly, the piglet was born without a mouth, and died about two hours after it was born.

Photos from October 17 show the carcass of the piglet, which was frozen in order to preserve it.
