The highly-anticiapted Pigs Gone Wild trail launches on Monday, June 27 and you will finally get to see what all 39 pigs look like in the flesh.

Maps are being printed and the app is being polished by developers ready for the arrival of the pigs. Then residents and visitors will be able to go wild, seeking out pigs, checking in using the app and marking them off on the map.

You will be able to share selfies and choose your favourite pig.

See our video above for a sneak peak at Steampunk Pig - sponsored by Birketts.
