The latest in cash storage is a piggy bank fashioned from a real taxidermized pig. The “Piglet Bank” is brought to you by Vancouver-based In the words of the creators:

“Designed for anyone who has far too much money and loose change, this is the piggy bank of all piggy banks. Its [sic] a real piglet that has been taxidermied and inserted with what all piglets probably dream of as babies, a coin storage unit and a cork plug. Make your plush overpriced apartment complete with this little guy.”

This tasteful money-hoarder will set you back $4,000 and, we are told, take up to 12 months from the time of order to produce. We are also assured the taxidermees died of “natural causes”.

The “Piglet Banks” have caused consternation among animal lovers. Paul Hart, who works for, has been startled by the reaction. “We are now getting death threats if we don’t stop producing these things,” he said.

“Just so you know that we don’t actually kill the piglets, they die of natural causes and these are the ones that we use. I’ve had all sorts of crazy messages, one person even emailed me to say they thought it was disgusting that I was breeding pigs with a slot in their back.”
