Weird Piggy Banks

What Do You Think of Piggy Banks Made From Real Pigs?

A Vancouver-based site,, is in hot water with animal rights groups because of a product they took too literally — piggy banks which they made from dead piglets, reports CNN. Don't worry animal lovers, the site says these taxidermied piggy banks are made from baby pigs who have died from natural deaths. Still, the Winnipeg Humane Society calls the product a "callous and demeaning exploitation of a baby animal's dead body."

These piglet banks are going for $4000, but even if they were affordable, I think I would be too creeped out to put coins into a piggy bank that looks extremely lifelike. What do you think of the piglet coin-holders?

That is disgusting on so many levels. Even if they aren't killing pigs to make the banks, I agree that it's a "demeaning explotation" and just plan wrong.
