Pig Rescues Goat: Really Cute, but Totally Faked
Nooo! The 30 seconds of adorableness that is "Pig Rescues Baby Goat" is sadly a sham. The clip was created for a Comedy Central series with an entire camera crew, animal trainers, scuba divers, and humane officers. While some news reporters are pretty peeved about the fake video, we're still content to watch the cute, even if it is fake. Swim on, little goat and pig!
That a faked video had been so rapidly disseminated by unskeptical news outlets was both surprising and dispiritingly familiar to professional experts on the news media.
