Jurgen the psychic pig trots out the football predictions

Jurgen the psychic pig trots out the football predictions

by Ollie Cowan (December 2016)

A RESCUED teacup pig named Jurgen has been hailed as a clairvoyant after he correctly predicted the outcome of the recent Merseyside Derby.

The pig, who lives at Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre, was tasked with picking between a red or blue trough – the outcome of which would apparently dictate the result of the 227th Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton at Goodison Park last week..

The stunt was commissioned and filmed by Southport internet radio station Coast On Line and shared numerous times on social media in the lead up to the game on December 19.

A spokesperson for Freshfield Animal Rescue said: “Jurgen Kloppig lapped up the attention, and appeared to be very confident in his prediction.

“There’s no stopping him now!

“Despite his size, Jurgen is actually a micro pig, who was rescued from the side of a road in Anfield by a passing taxi driver and later re-homed at the Formby-based Freshfields Animal Rescue Shelter.

Quite how Jurgen came to be wandering around the streets of L4 remain a mystery. He was named after Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp – who also came to Anfield around the same time as the plucky porcine.
