Guinea Wig: Montreal Man Uses Guinea Pig as a Hairpiece

A man in Montreal, Quebec, has found an unorthodox use for his newly-adopted guinea pig, using it as a hair piece.

Montreal resident David Freiheit said his family recently adopted an elderly long-haired guinea pig. Freiheit said he “had no idea” some guinea pigs had long hair.

Speaking to Storyful, Freiheit described the guinea pig’s hair as “majestic” and compared it to a toupée. “When I put it on top of my head, it really looks like I had long, wavy, Ringo Starr-type, celebrity hair. The kids seemed to get a kick out of it as well.” Credit: David Freiheit via Storyful
