'Micropig' grows into a 14-stone beast

An animal-loving couple were told the ultimate porkie when the micropig they bought grew into a 14-stone beast – who now hogs the limelight with his very own Instagram page. When Teresa Ruddell, 42, was given what she thought was a ‘teacup pig’ as a surprise from her maintenance manager partner, Don Plemmons, 41, she thought he would remain a tiny 10lb forever. But she soon realised that was absolute hogwash when the swine, who she named Ollie, began steadily growing.
