I think it might be because of boredom or just for fun. You got me on what to do about it.

How much exercise does she get? Does she have stuff to chew on?

Put a bowl below the bottle. If she keeps moving the bowl you can rig something up with twist ties or weights to keep it still.

LOL, our pig isn't so gracious when accepting treats either! I call it her rip/yank reflex. If you put food in front of her, she'll rip or yank it out of your hand. Our pig and our rat's cages are right next to each other, and the rat usually "visits" our pig, spending most of her time with our little piggy, so perhaps your pig is a little lonely or bored. We give our pigs lots of little toys. She especially likes ones with "tinkly balls" in them.

Well, it still sounds like she is doing it because she is bored. Does she have room to run and play? I will ask at Small Pet Central and see if they have thoughts.
