Grateful widow gives cops giant pig
Baffled police in China have been given a giant pig as a bizarre thank you for help they gave a grieving widow 15 years ago.
Farmer Lin Ruirong was devastated when her husband died in 1998 leaving her to run the family spread by herself.
But big-hearted local police in Nanning helped her get in the harvest until she was back on her feet.
Now Lin, 57, has finally paid them back with a giant porker raised on the farm they helped save.
"I never forgot their kindness because I would have been finished without it.
"I am quite wealthy now and this is the least I could do for them," she explained.
"I know the officers who helped me have probably moved on because it was a long time ago.
"But the ones in their place also go about helping people in trouble without complaint so they deserve a reward too," added Lin.
A police spokesman said:"We are very moved by this lady's new year gifts. It's our responsibility to serve people and we will always try out best to fulfil the mission perfectly."
what do you think?
If she is "quite wealthy now", then this does indeed seem the least she could do. Nuisance gift!
Do pigs as gifts have a special symbolism in China then???? Over here giving a cop a pig would probably get you arrested for contempt or something...
