Pig The Dugong Has Predicted The State Of Origin Game 2 Winner
Will Pig be right?
SEA Life Sydney
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium’s dugong, Pig, is a local treasure and his opinion usually does matter.
But today, we’re feeling just a little bit betrayed!
Our very own Pig has predicted Queensland’s Maroons as the State of Origin Game II winners - Surely not, Pig!
This morning, aquarists placed two State of Origin footballs inside the fortune-telling marine mammal’s favourite toys (one with a Maroons logo and one with the Blues) and tossed them into his oceanarium, giving him the choice between the two teams.
Pig used his trunk-like snout to momentarily sniff out the competition before snubbing the NSW team - and his HOME - in favour of the enemy!
“Being a Dugong, they are generally found up around Queensland and on the Great Barrier Reef. He was found as a rescue up there, so that’s where his story began and I believe that may have swayed his decision slightly,” Dayna from SEA LIFE explained.
“We’ll just have to wait and see just how accurate his fortune-telling skills are.”
Let’s hope his skills are terrible.
