Northern California hunters who shot a wild pig were shocked to find the animal’s meat surrounded by bright blue fat.

A user on social media posted strange image of the freakish discovery while at their in-laws’ Morgan Hill, CA., ranch.

The couple cut open the pig, drained most of the blood and were startled to see fluorescent blue fat peeking out of the incision. 

User GlendilTEK said the ranchers are aware blue pigmentation could be caused by copper poisoning, but there are only old mercury mine shafts near the property. Other wild pigs that were shot by the couple did not have neon blue fat. h/t abc7

Samples of the fat were sent off to UC Davis for testing.

This would make for some crazy looking bacon!
