Mangalitza pigs against Dutch pest plants

This video is called Cute mangalitza piglets.

Mangalitza pigs are a woolly domestic race from eastern Europe.

As their wool protects them, they are one of few animal species willing to eat stinging giant hogweed.

Giant hogweed, originally from Asia, was introduced as a garden plant elsewhere. It became a pest, including in Almere city in the Netherlands.

Now, Almere local authorities have brought in mangalitza pigs to eat the hogweed.

A video about that is here.
