'Mutant' Pig Born In China Had Penis On Forehead Claims Farmer (GRAPHIC IMAGES WARNING)

WARNING: This report contains graphic content, reader discretion is advised.

This, as you can hopefully tell, is no ordinary piglet.

The tragic specimen was born to a sow in southern China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and apparently sparked a bidding war thanks to it’s bizarre appearance.

This little piggy mercifully died before he was turned into a freak show exhibit

The images were published in a local newspaper along with quotes from farmer owner Tao Lu who mused the growth on its forehead resembled a penis and promised to cash in and put it on display.

The critter died after it was rejected by its mother and refused to feed from a bottle, leaving the entrepreneurial Lu somewhat out of pocket.

Poor little fella.
