I guess i could understand a guy being upset if it was a sheep in TN, but it's a farking pig.

That's just...wrong.  All of it.  Wrong.

I saws me a pig in the street so I thought, why the hell not?  Yee doggie, I loaded into that heifer with my 9 mil and was puttin' it into ol' Bart here when that dayum hog owner heifer came up and wouldn't let me get away.  I don't see why they wouldn't let me just have the pig, seein' how it was already dead and all.  Pet pig shot with 9 mil's just good eatin', y'all.

Last line of the article: The pig's body was given to the animal's owner for burial, Brady said.

What? No bacon? No succulent pork chops? No tasty, tasty ribs slow-cooked for hours? This is the real tragedy of this story.

jmr61: There's a lot of stupid in that story.


Let's not jump to conclusions. On the one hand, some guy is driving down highway 40 in his big ol' pickup truck, sees a pig, and decides to kill it and take it to a butcher. On the other hand, have you ever had South Carolina-style BBQ?

KrispyKritter: i couldn't kill an animal. i wish i felt the same about humans.


CSB: I raise goats. The girls are for milk (and delicious cheese), and the boys become sammich filling.

Being originally from east coast 'burbs, the only thing I'd ever killed were bong hits and pizza. The whole IDEA of killing an animal for food was weird to me. I never had to actually face what was wrapped neatly at the grocery store.

Fast-forward to September of last year. While I was away visiting family, the girlfriend had borrowed some goats to eat the weeds in the yard. After a while, they did their thing, and the owner came and got them, except one, who neither could catch. I was fine having a goat wander our yard, eating weeds, and staying out of our way. Then it started attacking our dogs, one of whom is deaf, nearly blind, and sixteen years old. So I decided to eat the little farker.

I watched a bunch of youtube videos to see how it's done, caught the bastard, and did the deed. It was weird. There was a lot of blood, and a definite moment where you have to decide to go through with it or not. I don't think I could ever kill an animal for anything other than food, or mercy. I could never kill someone's pet, or one OBVIOUSLY belonging to someone else, even if it was edible.

Having said that, that goat was farking delicious, and I started collecting and breeding goats for food. The boys all get castrated and named after Space Mutiny MST3K nicknames. (eg: Blast Hardcheese, Crud Bonemeal, Thick McRunfast, etc.)

Bob was brined and smoked for 8 hours back in early February, then thinly sliced and eaten on potato rolls with Hawaiian BBQ sauce.

Stuff like this makes me glad I never had to wear the pig costume when I worked at a Piggly Wiggly 20 some years ago.
 
2013-04-11 05:03:38 AM
Best part of the story: The guy tells bystanders he's going to go shoot the pig and haul it down to the local butcher shop...but when deputies get there he's all concerned the pig was going to cause an accident by wandering in traffic.

Uh-huh, sure buddy. That's probably why they didn't hand it over to you for pork chops.

I slaughtered my first pig about 2 years ago. It was a very primal thing. Felt nauseous for a few minutes after cutting it's throat to bleed it out. I didn't expect the blood to be so thick. There was a very weird sense of power, as well. Took me a few hours to butcher, but I've got it down to 2, now. It's still the best meat I've ever tasted, and I attribute that to it being my first.  Everyone who eats meat should slaughter an animal at least once, for a better sense of where it comes from, and how it arrives on ones plate.

Chickens, however, are a simple thing. Very fast, and a different emotional feel. Not that they matter less, but they're birds...it's just different.

From the night before to the moment I made the cut, I had that building sense of anxiety and nausea, but as soon as it was bleeding, I felt fine, like I was no longer looking at an animal, but a set of meat cuts.

There IS something in knowing you can safely kill and butcher your own food, if need be. It's a very satisfying, animal feeling. I doubt I'll ever slaughter a cow, but I've butchered one from whole, and it was a chore more than anything. Most of the pigs I've slaughtered were in the 220-250 pound range

Most hogs are slaughtered at the 250 range. Which is heavy work to scald them but doable. If you skin your hogs it's easier but I feel it's wasteful. Slaughtering a steer however is out of the range of most hobby farmers. Need more equipment,help etc. Just lifting that 1200 pounds after you kill it requires a large tractor or such.

Or at least watch. I worked in a zoo long enough I'm okay with slaughterhouses for the most part, even the videos PETA get all bent out of shape about usually show a rather preferable death to some of the most common ones prey animals get. Spiders liquify your insides as they eat. You're not dead, just paralyzed. Think about that for awhile.

I've grown custom to the smell. It's just newbies can be turned off by it. Slaughtering is like sex. The first time is rough and your not going to enjoy it much. The first time my now wife came to my parents farm on opening day of deer season she cried. The sight of 10 deer hanging from barn trusses made her sick. It didn't help we are tip to tail eaters.

Sure, though I've seen plenty of PETA vids where dudes are flat out punching/kicking/otherwise beating the animals before or during. I've always been an animal lover, and prior to my first slaughter i generally bought organic/from farms, but once i killed my own, the importance of well kept and clean killed became so much more apparent. Not that it wasn't before, but doing it yourself makes it a bit more personal in a number of ways. Hell, I make my own cat food now.

So have I. That's why I used a qualifier.

And while it's sad this pig got shot, the dude wasn't out killing pigs for sport. The pig escaped from its enclosure in RURAL TENNESSEE! Y'know, where bacon is made. He was planning on eating the pig. He kinda poached it, but farm animals are meals on wheels feet. He was intending to have it butchered. For once $1000 fine seems reasonable. Normally I'm of the opinion that cruelty to animals and hanging should go hand in hand because it's clear from history if we don't stop the monsters who light a cat on fire today they'll film "three men one screwdriver" (SNUFF FILM, DO NOT GOOGLE THAT) tomorrow.
