It would make it slightly less stomach-churning if we could credit/blame this bizarre baby monkeyfaced pig on irresponsible cross-breeding. Unfortunately, the Chinese-born little guy is 100% piglet, although he does apparently suffer from holoprosencephaly, "genetic alteration...due to environmental exposure to certain chemicals."

Here's to hoping he grows healthy and strong. In the meantime, let's take a moment to remember Cy, the ugly-cute one-eyed kitten from Oregon who, sadly, died a day after birth. Sad face.
