Woolly sheep pigs arrive at Essex zoo

Rare woolly pigs – or sheep pigs –have been brought to the Essex Zoo to breed, to help stop the rare animals going extinct. They are officially known as Mangalitzas and are native to Austria and Hungary, but do have a genetic link to the Lincolnshire curly coat, which roamed British fields until they went extinct in 1972.
