The shocked 40-year-old said that after pictures of the mutant animal appeared in local media, he began to receive offers of large sums of money in exchange for the pig.
He said: “It was a large litter, and the mutant was one of the last of 19 piglets to be born.
“All the others were normal, just this one was really bizarre.
Although the piglet was born alive and squealing, it was rejected by its mother and it refuse to feed from a bottle and so died shortly afterwards.
Mr Tao said: “It is a shame it died, I could have got more money for it then for the rest of the family put together based on what people were offering me on the phone.”
He said they had wanted to put the strange creature on display to attract visitors.
Local resident Wu Kung saw the pig in the flesh.
He said: “I was one of a dozen people who went there to see the piglet, and it really did have human face and exactly like he said, a penis growing out of its forehead.”
