Jumping pigs steal the show

Here at Stylist we go all silly over animal pictures and couldn’t resist these action snaps of the All-Alaskan pig racing team, bounding at top speed around their custom-made race track.

The super-fast pig race is one of the star attractions at this year’s annual Alameda County Fair in California. Other charming attractions at this annual county shin-dig are the Mutton Bustin' rodeo - where kids ride on sheep - hotdog eating races and and for burger lovers, the world’s biggest hamburger.

And they’re off. To a chorus of oinks and grunts, kicking up the sawdust as they go, watch the video of the All-Alaskan pig race below.
