National Geographic Visits the Swimming Pigs of Big Major Cay in Exuma, Bahamas

Big Major Cay, an uninhabited island in the Bahamas, is home to dozens of feral pigs. No one is quite sure how they got to “Pig Beach,” but if you’re lucky enough to visit this island, the pigs will swim right up to your boat to greet you
