Grateful widow gives cops giant pig

Pig present /Europics

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."
