From Pigs to Wolves: Celebrity Weird Pets

From naming their kids weird things like Apple and Bronx and believing in aliens, I mean, scientology...Celebrities are a weird group of individuals. Another strange habit of the rich and famous is adopting very bizarre pets. From pet pigs that seem more like a domestic partner to chickens that double as handbags, these are the stars with the weirdest pets.

Tori Spelling: Tori Spelling doesn't have just one weird pet, she has a Noah's Ark variety of strange pets. She has the normals, i.e. cats, dogs and bunnies but she also has chickens and goats. Sometimes she strolls around LA carrying her chicken like a clutch. Or I guess you can call it a CLUCKtch. Get it? Because chickens cluck...never mind.

Kristen Stewart: Reason #137 why Kristen Stewart is an emotionless vampire woman without a soul...She owns wolves! What the hell!? Apparently she owns some kind of wolf/dog hybrid (Insert Twilight Joke here). She once did a photoshoot with her wolf/dog/Taylor Lautner/thing and said, "This is my pet. I know he looks kind of scary, he's a wolf. He's really sweet."

George Clooney: Clooney may not settling down with a woman anytime soon, but he does have a special someone in his life. His pet pig. Okay the pig died in 2006, but Clooney had that pet pig Max from 1987 to 2006, making it the longest relationship of Clooney's life. When asked if Clooney would get another pig, the actor once said, "No. I think Max covered all my pig needs." When asked if Clooney would ever get married, the actor said, "No. I think Max covered all my marital needs." I made up that second quote.

Courtney Love: Love has a turtle. How she's able to nurture any living creature is beyond me, but since owning a turtle is like having a pet rock that you occasionally have to feed, she's probably doing okay with this pet. But give that woman a cat or a dog and the animal will probably try to emancipate itself.

Mike Tyson: Mike Tyson is weird kind of guy, so when I found out that Mike Tyson raced pigeons as a hobby I didn't even bat an eyelash. Face tattoo? Comically endearing stutter? Pigeon racer? Sure why not. He told the NY Post, "I feel a great pride acting as an official representative for all the pigeon fanciers out there." As a pigeon fancier myself (not really, just kidding) I swell with pride knowing that Mike Tyson is the spokesperson.

Paris Hilton: Paris Hilton has a pet Kinkajou named Baby Luv. Besides that stupid stripper name, a Kinkajou is the most adorable animal/thing I've ever seen. It looks like a squirrel and a chinchilla but is a totally lethal pet. Paris, because she's dumb, took Baby Luv out on a shopping spree (Baby Luv needs a new Birkin bag) and the thing bit her face and attacked her, sending her to the hospital. Also, this deadly little precious fluff ball is also known as a "sugar bear" if Kinkajou is too hard to pronounce.

Kourtney Kardashian: The eldest Kardashian was spotted shopping in NYC for a snake last week. And no, she wasn't shopping for a snakeskin jumpsuit (because that's like totally something a Kardashian would wear, amiright?) she was buying a straight up anaconda. This isn't the only weird pet for the Kardashians. In 2009 they owned a pet chimpanzee named Suzy who could operate a blackberry. No idea where that chimp is now but I'm sure she's in talks to get her own E! reality show spin-off, "Chimpanzee Suzy takes the Zoo!"

Hugh Hefner: The playboy mansion is both a brothel and a zoo! Besides a menagerie of "bunnies," Hefner actually has a zoo permit and a backyard filled with squirrel monkeys and more than 100 species of birds.

Vanilla Ice: Vanilla Ice owns a Wallaro, which is a cross between a wallaby and a kangaroo. I don't know what a wallaby is because I was sick during the "Australian Pets" section of the 3rd grade, but this seems like a pet you shouldn't confine to a backyard. Eventually the animal broke free and ran wild in the streets of Saint Lucie, Florida where Vanilla Ice lives.
