If you’re planning your next vacation, you might consider Big Major Cay, otherwise known as Pig Beach, an uninhabited island in the Bahamas where approximately 20 feral pigs roam freely and take regular dips in the beautiful blue water. Like Japan’s mysterious Bunny Island, it’s unclear how the pigs came to live on Big Major Cay, but there are a few suspicions: one story maintains that a group of sailors dropped the pigs off on the island with plans to return and eat them, but (luckily for the pigs) they never came back. That’s probably for the best, if it’s true — living a life dominated by sun-tanning all day and swimming with humans is definitely preferable to being cooked.
