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.
Now, Almere local authorities have brought in mangalitza pigs to eat the hogweed.
A video about that is here.
