FARMER FINDS PIGS AREN'T SQUEALING JACKSON FANS

Pop star Michael Jackson may draw huge crowds around the world, but Indian wild pigs are not among his fans.

A farmer in the southern state of Karnataka, troubled over the animals attacking his crops, found to his surprise that playing Jackson's songs scared them away, Press Trust of India said Monday.Anath Patwardhan, who would beat drums to keep the pigs at bay, accidently played a Jackson cassette on his small player while guarding the crop and found it made the pigs run away. He now plays Jackson's tapes regularly.
