I think the myth you're thinking about or heard was that the pig would lift it's snout during a rainfall and drown itself. The theory was that the pig was so stupid it wouldn't know not to do that. And I've heard that in reference to turkeys, as well. From what I know and we haven't had pigs, yet. It's not true. Pigs are actually fairly smart animals.
