Does this article prove a piglet with human features was born between 2015 and March 10, 2023? No, that's not true. The article that reported it relied on the old photos of sculptures created by an Italian artist and provided no other evidence.

According to ICANN, it was registered on November 28, 2022, by an unnamed individual in Reykjavik, Iceland.
It is not the only anonymous website spreading false claims associated with the same mailing address. Previously, Lead Stories debunked another article stating that Elon Musk purportedly tweeted that Bill Gates "doesn't know how to code." ICANN also showed the same mailing address in Iceland.
