This Beer Stealing Pig Has Been Hit With An Alcohol Ban

By : Alex Bentley |



Some people shouldn’t drink. You know the type. Them lads who have a pint then try to take on the world, or start stealing people’s drinks. And the Vietnamese Pot-Belly Pig that get’s too rowdy…

A pig by the name of ‘Frances Bacon’ is a regular at the Conquering Hero pub in London, where she lives with her owners Ian and Vicky. They used to let her have the occasional sip of cider or beer from their glasses.

But now they have had to ban her from drinking.

Frances was going around the pub minesweeping, and drinking from drinks left out, and started to headbutt the patrons in order to get more drink.


Ian talked about Frances, saying:

She’s lovely – definitely our favourite regular.

We’ve had to bar her from having any beer though.

She managed to nick a pint or two and then started butting into people. But we’re keeping a closer eye on her now and that won’t happen again.

They already had to move the snacks to a higher shelf, after Frances developed a taste for pork scratchings… Which is a bit odd. Is that cannibalistic? It must be, surely?
