Police in Rakai District are investigating circumstances under which a pig is said to have eaten and killed a one-month-old baby who was found inside the house of a resident.
The incident happened Saturday morning at Kateera village in Ddwaniro Sub County, Rakai District when the child’s mother, Peace Tukwasibwe aka “Mukyala Jose” left the child in the house and went to her banana plantation for some greens to prepare breakfast.
Abraham Muhangi, a resident in the village said such an incident was never anticipated.
Muhangi explains that the pig managed to eat the baby’s head, arms, and stomach before resting on the infant’s mattress.
Kateera village Chairperson Charles Mwanje says the residents resorted to killing the pig and burnt it to ashes because no one had intentions of eating it.
He advised residents to be cautious with children because a pig can easily do great harm to them.
