Pigcasso Paints

Weighing in at 450 lbs, Pigcasso is an artist -- of the porcine kind -- who was rescued and adopted by South African animal rights activist Joanne Lefson. The pig became fascinated with paintbrushes and developed a passion -- and impressive talent -- for painting abstract works, including a portrait of Donald Trump which went viral. Pigcasso’s paintings are now selling for thousands for dollars, attention that the pig’s caretaker is using to shed light on the plight of many other pigs.
