    Well, if you were a hog, you'd do the same thing.

    700 pound hogs!!!???

    A 700 pound hog is a BFP! We are talking about an animal the general size and shape of a Fiat 500.

    And yes, pigs have been used for corpse disposal for thousands of years. They will eat you.

    Feeding the pigs was one job I was never allowed to do until I was well into my teens for just that reason. Even then we fed them from outside the pen, pouring the corn and slops over the fence into the awaiting trouths. We never considered the pigs pets. We might make pets out of the cows and calves but not the pigs. Entering the pigpen was always considered a risk and not done without two people present. Them was the rules.

    Age 4, I fell into the pig pen. Nobody understod how I climbed up 4 feet of corrugated steel in under 3 seconds.
    Those sows were the size of VWs, and always sported a bad attitute.

    Yea,the property directly behind me,used to a pig farm,the old barn still stands where IT happened,but the mans grown sons will not go back there... a few odd years ago,the old farmer spoke to one son one evening,and hung up the phone to go feed his hogs,and his normal practice was to call the other son after coming back in from feeding them,that way they both knew he was alright.

    But this time,he did not call the second son,but it was 3 days before they became worried enough to come check on him,well what was left of him anyway. The belief here is that he had a heart attack and fell over the wall of the pig pen,his legs remaining outside of the pen,they found one foot stuck just outside the top of the pen,and the other leg stuck at the knee next to the foot. The hogs were destroyed on the spot and buried in the barn as soon as the investigation was over.
    Soular powered by the son.

    Scary stuff.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    Last I checked, the point of raising hogs is to kill and eat them. Crazy story.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean they have to like it.

    I do not think hogs are condisered sincient beings, aware of their own existance. I do not think that capability exists until you get into the higher apes.

    The Hog, therefore, has no opinion on the matter.

    My dad told me he and his cousin used to hang chickens over the pig pen with bailing wire just to watch the pigs jump up and take them whole! Oh, the life of a farm kid, pre-internet! lol

    pigs love meat, especially offal. I've thrown mine dead snakes and all sorts of stuff, slaughter waste from rabbit butchering, etc. They love it.

    Hogs eat anything and everything including the bones.

    "A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa), along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the babirusa and the warthog. Pigs, like all suids, are native to the Eurasian and African continents. Juvenile pigs are known as piglets. Pigs are omnivores and are highly social and intelligent animals."

    Pigs and Hogs
    Pigs and hogs are the same, only classed differently by their weight; they are called pigs when they are small and when they reach 120 pounds or more then are classified as hogs.
    A boar is a male and a sow is a female.
    Pigs - Etymology: Middle English pigge
    1: a young swine not yet sexually mature; broadly: a wild or domestic swine
    Hogs - Etymology: Middle English hogge, from Old English hogg
    1: a domestic swine especially when weighing more than 120 pounds (54 kilograms); broadly: any of various wild and domestic swine

    When I was about 8 y/o, my Grandmother fell into the pig pen when feeding one day. A 400# plus sow broke her arm and she was lucky to get out with just that injury.

    Human biology/physiology instructors most often dissect pigs in class, as their internal organs and most muscles are very similar to those of a human.
