'The Cheeky' online store is selling a $4,000 'Piglet Bank' that takes the piggy bank concept quite literally. Made from a little pig that's declared to have died of natural causes, this taxidermic coin container is quite the controversial piece.
Ryan McCormick of thecheeky.com has confirmed that animal activists are openly up in arms about the 'Piglet Bank,' which has yet to sell. Made-to-order, each hollowed-out 'Piglet Bank' takes up to 12 months to manufacture -- this includes both a waiting game and the taxidermy process.
