The lowly pig has played a role in human culture for millennia. The domestic pig was bred from the Eurasian wild boar thousands of years ago.
Today, it can be found all around the world, and with a population of about one billion individuals, the pig is one of the most numerous large mammals.
References to the pig can be found in centuries old folklore, including the Chinese zodiac, the parable of the prodigal son, and such fairy tales as "The Three Little Pigs."
Pigs played a large role in the social commentary Animal Farm (1945) by George Orwell, and its film adaptations.
In modern popular culture, pigs have been immortalized as such cartoon characters as Porky Pig of the Looney Tunes and the British cartoon character, Peppa Pig.
