Pigs spotted swimming across Istanbul's Bosphorus
ISTANBULA herd of pigs were seen in the evening of Oct.10 swimming across the Bosphorus by the locals of the Rumeli Kavağı neighborhood in Istanbul, daily Habertürk has reported.
The residents of Rumeli Kavağı saw the pigs crossing from the European side of the city to the Anatolian side for the first time despite being familiar with them in the neighborhood as one of the rare greenwood areas of Istanbul.
A fisherman who was nearby with his boat said he had seen a silhouette on the sea which turned out to be a herd of 10 pigs when he approached them.
In 2006, a group of fishermen caught two pigs off the northwestern province of Tekirdağ, which also surprised the locals in the area.
