Viral Video of "Pig Rescues Baby Goat" Revealed As YouTube Hoax

Sorry to burst your bubble but the "hero" pig not is so heroic after all.

Ain't that a bleep.

New York Times recent report revealed that the 30-second clip which supposedly showed a pig rescuing a goat in a pond at a petting zoo — which went viral after it was posted on YouTube last September, proved to be a phoney. It was created and staged by the people behind Comedy Central series "Nathan for You."

The viral hoax fooled the nation's top news companies — ABC's "Good Morning America," Fox News & NBC's "Nightly News" as well as some of internet's leading websites like Gawker and The Huffington Post.

'Pig Rescues Baby Goat' which has since been seen more than 7 million times, was a methodical result of preemptive work by animal trainers and several crew members — the pork is on you.
