Thumbs down Griefing Report: Someone/thing killed all my livestock!!!

I logged on today and instead of having cows, pigs and sheep in the livestock pen, I find this...





I'm confused. How does a pig-man end up there?

I actually have an answer to this conundrum (from the good old wiki)! I've never seen or heard of this but when a pig is struck by lightning it turns into a zombie pigman. I guess the lightening strike also then killed all of the animals.

Maybe the pigman went into a panic frenzy when he found himself trapped and killed all the other animals

Think yourself lucky it wasn't a creeper powered up by lightning. They are worse than hard. (cf Creeper - Minecraft Wiki)

If you get two, can you get them to breed? Do they follow you if you have wheat in your hand? Can you make an army of them?

Wow that's cool.

Are there some biomes that get more lightning than others?

The enderman is looking pretty nonchalant in the background, like he's trying not to be seen

The pig-men die in the sunlight. You'll see that the biome changes within the fenced area. When the pigman walks into the desert biome the light gets brighter and he burns. So they only hang around during the night or rain.

I also read that Ghasts can follow players through the portals! That would be cool.
