The death of Bahamas' swimming pigs remains a big mystery. Locals believe that it was the tourists who unintentionally killed the pigs.

Mail Online released the most recent investigation into the mysterious death of one of Bahamas' famous attractions. The famous and adored swimming pigs were found dead not long ago due to humans.

Local officials strongly believe that the tourists have made the pigs drunk that caused their death. Some of the pigs were featured on an episode of "The Bachelor" right before half-dozen of the swimming pigs were found dead.

Investigators probe the death of the once adored swimming pigs and have found foul play. Some of the released pigs on Bahamas island may have possibly eaten poison while others were found intoxicated with alcohol and may have drowned.

According to Travel and Leisure, there are only seven or eight pigs left recently, while the total number of swimming pigs which have died is still undetermined. Because of the incident, the protective zone was established to keep the tourists away from the island swimming pigs.

Bahamas Humane Society President Kim Aranha said, "It could just be a horrible accident where they ate something poisonous. It could be malicious, but I don't really see why someone would go out of their way to hurt those lovely animals."

To recall, aside from "The Bachelor," Hollywood actress Bella Thorne had her snapped the photo with the Bahamas' swimming pigs last month. Together with her sister Dani Thorne enjoyed their photos and fun with the swimming pigs. Likewise, Donald Trumo Jr. with his wife and kids had enjoyed a summer with the swimming pigs last year.

Wayde Nixon, a Bahamas man is the one who claimed from setting four sows and a boar on the island in mid-1990. His goal is to create a sustainable food for the hogs in a case of catastrophe.

Whether it's the rowdy tourists that unintentionally killed the Bahamas' swimming pigs or not there should be proper guidance with the boars to prevent this from happening again in the future. The dead pigs were recognized by the local government and received an honorable sea burial.
