The perils of broadcasting video live on Facebook have been widely chronicled since the format was introduced earlier this year, but they’ve really made a pig’s ear out of this one.

Irish radio station RTÉ Radio 1 was forced to end a Facebook Live broadcast early on Saturday when a pig in the studio decided to void its bowels on the carpet.

The sow, named Martina, had been brought along by a representative from the Irish Pig Society for a chat in the show’s CountryWide segment.

Just seconds into their interview, the special guest did something unprecedented and took a dump on the studio floor.

The pig, not the spokesperson.

“We tried to do a full Facebook Live video - but Martina left us a little present, so it was time to evacuate,” RTE Radio 1 later commented on the video.

Still, who could stay angry at such an adorable little animal?
