Response to Coventina (Reply #6)

15. Just curious, are aware of how pigs became domesticated?

It's an interesting story, basically they decided to hang with humans so they could get forage through human refuse piles. Pretty much the deal became they got easy food and humans got to eat them.

Are you familiar with how many piglets a sow births in a litter and how often a sow has litters? One of the more destructive forces in a number of states are feral pigs. Their numbers have to be controlled, what do you think should be done with the carcasses?

I guess my point is, of all the animals humans use as food pigs are probably the best choice so why don't you think they should be used as food?
