Clever piggies

I must admit to having had a little chuckle when I read that Kevin and Francis have already escaped a few times from their enclosure.  It seems an electric fence isn’t enough to stop these inquisitive little guys.  It got me thinking about other stories I have read about pigs escaping from slaughterhouses and lead me to a little searching on the internet.  Apparently pigs are “more intelligent than most dogs and three year old children” (http://www.animalsaustralia.org/media/photos.php?photo=Pig+intelligence).  I wonder what my three year old child would have to say about that.
