Animal news: super pigs, cow sex, imitating a sheep, wow

From Harper’s Weekly Review:

Canadian scientists warned of a new breed of “incredibly intelligent, highly elusive” super pigs threatening northern states.

Not clear whether the super pigs are feral, and/or how they’re threatening northern states. All pigs are intelligent, but they don’t have to be “incredibly intelligent” to have accounts on social media; is that how they’re delivering those threats?

An Indonesian man was arrested for killing his fiancée after she had accused him of having sex with a cow, and a convicted murderer attempted to escape a Bolivian prison by pretending to be a sheep.

The Bolivian murderer might have read The Odyssey but, if so, he got the sheep thing all wrong. (How does one pretend to be a sheep?)
