THIS pig was on the way to a slaughterhouse, before he made a death-defying jump from a moving truck to save his bacon.

The pig was in a transportation truck in South America, and managed to climb on the top of the truck’s back roof.

A driver behind the truck filmed the pig making his way up to the top of the truck, before he suddenly jumped out.

    He is seen falling on to the road, where he rolls to the side and onto the grass
.

The pig then slowly stands up and starts hobbling away with what appeared to be a broken back leg.

The footage has made its way onto YouTube, after another pig recently leapt off another truck in China.

A witness said the Chinese sow, now referred to as ‘Babe’, climbed over the backs of other pigs before leaping out of the slaughterhouse van, Metro UK reports.

Images of this pig have gone around the world, after police who responded to the incident in the Guangxi region took her in and have adopted her.
