Two Tamworth boars were filmed swimming a mile across the ocean in the north-west of Scotland.
Not content to graze on an uninhabited island the pigs decided to swim home after being left for only one day. 'We put them out at 6pm on the Thursday evening and on Friday about 8pm I got a call to say "Your piglets have just swam back home"' said owner James Cameron.
"Pigs can't fly - but this pair of homesick Tamworth boar crosses can certainly swim."
