Watch: Pigs can’t fly but apparently they can swim

Your typical Italian menu would separate dishes according to whether they are land (di terra) or sea (di mare).

A Sicilian fisherman encountered an unusual scene, 5 miles off land. Gianluca Passarella spotted what he thought was a shark. On closer inspection could hardly believe his eyes, when he saw two wild pigs, known in Italian as chingiali.

Passarella began maneuvering the boat to try to guide the pigs, who were very tired and thirsty, to swim to land.
