Pigasso the 2 year old painting pig was saved from the slaughterhouse.

Pigasso lives in a South African Santuary, where she now spends her days painting abstract expressionist art. Joanne Lefson who runs the animal rescue knew that pigs were very smart animals, so she brought out items for her to play with. Pigasso took to painting and before they knew it, a New York Gallery paid $800 for a small piece. Fame followed and now Pigasso’s painting go for about $1600 a piece, which funds the animal sanctuary.
