Pig is an unincorporated community in southern Edmonson County, Kentucky, United States. Pig is generally referred to as the area near KY 422, stretching from the road's southern terminus at US 31-W, north along KY 259 towards Rhoda and KY 70 towards Brownsville.

The town was so named after disputes over which name to choose. A resident stated he saw a small hog on the road. The name of Pig was then accepted.[2]

It is part of the Bowling Green, Kentucky Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The town is approximately 21.2 miles away from Bowling Green, in Warren County.
