Woman finds two-headed piglet buried in mother's yard

SAEGERTOWN, Pa., - A Pennsylvania woman said she discovered a two-headed piglet preserved in a glass jar buried in her mother's back yard.

Sharon Reagle said she was planting hostas at the Saegertown home of her mother, Betty Wood, Sunday when she came across a jar containing preserving fluid and a tied-closed bag, the Meadville (Pa.) Tribune reported Tuesday.

Reagle said she took the object inside and opened the bag, revealing the two-headed piglet inside.

"It was unique; pretty neat really," Reagle said. "It didn't bother me at all."

"My parents lived there for 56 years and never raised pigs," Reagle said of the jar's unknown origins.

Reagle donated the strange specimen to Allegheny College.

"This is like Christmas for a biologist. The students will love it," said Lisa Whitenack, assistant professor of biology at the school.

Probably received as a weird “gift” and buried out of respect for the poor deformed animal.

I used to have a six legged chicken. I worked in a chicken hatchery at the time and we often saw weird stuff hatched.

"I used to have a six legged chicken."

Wow. Bet you'd never catch it if it got loose!

Na, it had two regular legs and four more growing out of the hip area that were no use, but you could tell they were legs because of their feet and claws.

Such creatures don’t live very long. One head wants to go right, the other left.
Sort of like a Florida senator ....

He was a real man.

I fear that America has, understandably, lost its stomach for total war. Unfortunately, our enemy hasn’t.

When I was a little kid I went to the Piggly Wiggly with my mom. I stayed in the hot car, which was the custom of the time. I had standing orders not to leave the car, but across the street in front of the feed store was a group of men looking in a pickup. Four year old me couldn’t resist after a while I went over. Some guy lifted me up onto the tailgate and I saw a dead two headed Hereford calf. And then the owner spoke, with a vibrator thingy pressed beside the hole in his throat from having his larynx removed. Well, that was too many for me and I ran back to the car, never to speak of what I saw for many years.

There was a reason your mom didn’t want you out of the car!
