The Ballad of Squeaky the Wonder Pig

The Houston Chronicle tells the surprisingly heartwarming tale of a 385-pound feral pig living on Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan’s China Grove Ranch in Texas. Adopted by a kind-hearted ranch manager, Squeaky herds cattle, guards against her feral brethren, and causes adorably hilarious mischief.

She’s been known to break into the ranch house and raid the refrigerator to messily slurp up raw eggs and leftover pizza. She considers a wallow in mud to be the height of fashion and doesn’t like to be washed off.

Texas-size—and presumably non-veterinarian-sanctioned—snacks for Squeaky include marshmallows and the occasional bowl of Dr Pepper.
