The Canadian government is on the verge of approving the introduction of extremely bizarre genetically modified pigs into the Canadian food supply. These new mouse/pig hybrids have been dubbed "enviropigs" and are being touted as being much better for the environment.
This new "breed" of Yorkshire pigs was created by scientists in Ontario at the University of Guelph, who spliced in genes from mice to decrease the amount of phosphorus produced in the pigs' excrement. So soon millions of Canadians will be eating meat from mouse/pig hybrid creatures and most of them will not even know it. It is expected that approval for this new "brand" of pigs will be sought in the United States as well
