Piglet seized to recover bank debt

Court officers in far eastern Russia have seized a piglet from a woman who owes 13,000 roubles to the bank, and put it up for sale to recover some of the money.

The woman had been given the seven-month old piglet for safekeeping, but it was taken away after a court survey of her property found it to be her most valuable possession.  A piglet could fetch around 10,000 roubles.

Consumer debt in Russia has crippled local economies in low-income areas, which have been hardest hit by the economic crisis.
