Where’d that little piggy go?

Earlier this week I read a story about a family who had lost theitr Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. They looked all over town for it with no luck. Finally, they found it.

But I won’t even tell you where. -ram

wait, that guys gets charged with cruelty to animals when all he was really doing was eating pork he slaughtered himself?

not that what happened to the poor little piggy isn't sad but i mean, it's not like they shot the dog...

It is a litte strange, though, that he shot the pig out of self defense and then decided to eat it... I'd think that if you shot something out of self defense and then thought, "Hm, let's fire up the grill," something's wrong. :)

My bet is that he knew darn well that the pig was a pet and went ahead and killed it anyway.

But, that's just my inference after reading that short article.

Goodness... that's just a weird story all-around. I'm really curious to know whether these families had any animosity between them before this incident -- as I said, I think that he would probably have known it was a pet. Or are there lots of wild pigs running around in Deming? Liz? :)

Johnny B had the fellow who shot the pig on his show, today. Turns out they took the case to The Peoples' Court and he lost because - allegedly - he couldn't give his side of the case. The show airs next month.



What is this then?
