    My father used to be very wary of letting us kids get too close to hogs. He was a farmer in his youth, and was very concerned about hogs.

    I guess this brought back memories.

    When I was a kid, we bucket fed our sows. When I went in, I had to move fast or get run over. I can really understand how that could happen.

    Many farmers die on the job, and this is just one way to do it. Tough way to go.

    Sometimes you eat the bacon...sometimes the bacon eats you.

    Hogs/pigs have a very specific hierarchy.
    "Every man for himself."

    They are not like dogs, cats, or humans. They are different. Do NOT turn your back on them.

    What an appropriate story to go with your Avatar.

    Bricktop:

    "You're always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together. And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a p***head. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig sh**, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig"."

    And feel free to consider the possibility that he had some kind of medical incident and fell into the hog pen still alive an conscious. And the hogs put an end to that alive part. Absolutely possible.
    NEVER trust hogs.

    They were not ordinary hogs. They weighed in at 700lbs. Monsters.

    I learned something today. Didn't know they were that nasty, not on the rare occasion I visit a farm and see them in a pen, they're kinda cute and funny, amusing even…watching them root around.


    What a way to go. Ugh...

    I have family who are hog farmers. They have always said not to trust them, they will eat anything including YOU.
