Am I the only guy who finds white trash attractive?

Good thing she didn't loan them her mother.

No, but I would argue that's not white trash, that's a hipster

He was probably just bacon to come back home.

You don't loan a pet. If you think you can do that then be prepared for the animal to be treated as property.

FTA: "Unfortunately, it became clear he was a little lonely and I thought he would benefit from socialising with other pigs...  They had a female pig they wanted to mate and they said Marmite would make the perfect stud."

Ha.. I wonder how it became clear he was "a little lonely"?

She sounds flaky and the school sounds like they left a phone message about the pig and just sent it off anyway before anyone even got back to them.

This never would have happened if Dear Abby just answered my letter about the proper etiquette when responding to a phone message.

Sounds like she never socialized her pig; probably never neutered him either. That's probably why he was aggressive; miss piggy was in heat or something.

That's exactly how I feel every time I venture onto Match.com

I just want to stay home now. Safe. Alone.

Miss Dell said she offered to take Marmite back or help to find him another home, though the school disputes this.

...

'The previous owners were contacted by the school to notify them of this development, but at no point did they offer to have it back or to help rehouse it.

So, they contacted her and told her that the pig had to go, and she either a)  offered to take the pig back, or b) didn't.

I'm going with b.

I agree.  The school claims they notified her, she claims no notice.  Lacking records my assumption is that they either didn't give her enough time or are covering their tracks claiming they sent a message for her to pick the pig up.
 
2014-04-08 06:58:32 PM
This little piggy should have stayed home.
 
2014-04-08 06:58:49 PM
The story missed the important part.  Who got the bacon?
 
2014-04-08 06:59:08 PM
Sorry miss, but your pig was delicious aggressive and had to go.
 
2014-04-08 07:00:03 PM
I do the out rubbing when I see the article of the Daily Mailings website while I do the pretending that this is the true story. Then I do this the second time to tyne randomization of the pictures.

Was going to say bacon and then go read the article; I see it's already been done though.

Now that I see something about attractive white trash though I'm going to go check it out.

She gave the pig to the school because it was lonely. The pig is no longer lonely. Success!

Are you sating the school's claim is hogwash?

I think that is the key word right there.  She may have loaned the animal in her mind, but it was donated in the school's mind.

Nope, they breed like crazy.

Having read the article I must reluctantly conclude that she might be somewhat hot physically.  That being said her choice to have a micro-pig, a descriptor often applied to pigs that are in no way small, as a pet, leads me to believe that she may be somewhat crazy.  Knowing rule number one I would be reluctantly forced to move on.

So, she bought a trendy pot belly pig with no knowledge of how to care for the thing.  Raised it like a purse chihuahua and probably didn't get it neutered.  It starts to grow up, sexually mature, become aggressive and leave snail trails on couches and visitor's legs.

She gave it away because she couldn't handle it.  None of this "loan" stuff".  Oh, I'm sure that's what she told herself.  But two guesses as to who was paying for the pig's upkeep.

The pig becomes too aggressive and the school wisely separated it from the others under vets recommendation.  They call her up and say "come get this thing".  She doesn't because she's busy/ doesn't think they really do anything/ out of town/ grandmother just died etc.

So, no doubt after several weeks, they sent the animal away to be put down.  I don't know about the area where this happened but where I'm from you generally can't slaughter a pet animal for meat unless you do it yourself at home.  It hasn't been reared by FDA or equivalent regulations.  Sorry fellas, there's no bacon to be had.

My cousin got a little pig when we were young.  Except for the sensationalist Daily Fail write-up it played out pretty much the same way.

"Micro" is, apparently, a relative term.

/oh, no, they said he had to go
//go go PIGZILLA!
///oh, no, too big to call micro
////go go PIGZILLA!
//PIGZILLA! ... PIGZILLA! ... PIGZILLA! ...  PIGZILLA! ...  PIGZILLA! ...  PIGZILLA! ...  PIGZILLA! ...  PIGZILLA! ...  PIGZILLA! ...

Two points I'd like to make......

1.  That animal seems awfully big to be a "micro" pig.
2.  That's a rough looking 21 year old.
 
2014-04-08 07:33:22 PM
That pig is not "micro". It's not 1000 Lbs but certainly not micro.
 
2014-04-08 07:33:41 PM
OK, in a display of the triumph of hope over experience I'll take the Daily Mail at their word until they are proven wrong on this issue.

It sounds a lot like she got a pig, found out that having a pig was too much like hard work, fobbed the pig off onto a local school so she could occasionally visit it for the fun parts of having a pet pig while avoiding all the costs and hassle of owning an animal, refused to take it back when asked - presumably thinking "what are they going to do if I refuse? Turn it into bacon? I doubt it" and then got all outraged when she found out the school was serious.

I've got good news, and bad news.
The bad news is:  your pig was aggressive, so we had it slaughtered.
The good news is:  BACON SAMMICHES!!!
 
2014-04-08 07:41:25 PM
If you're going to get a unique pet, then get a well behaved civilized one.

Probably because it was nipping at her and acting aggressive. It became a bit much for her to handle after trying to care for it for a month or two, so she decided it was "lonely" and needed company... in other words, she couldn't handle it any more.
 
2014-04-08 07:48:11 PM
Who slaughters a mini pot bellied pig?

Also who puts said pig in with fully grown regular pigs and expects him to "stud"?

And what kind of school keeps pigs, expecting to breed them and does not expect aggression when you have two unaltered males and one female in a pen?

The owner doesn't sound like the most rational, forward thinking pet owner but the school also seems delusional.

\So many questions.  So much stupid
\\Poor pig

FTFA:  Miss Dell said: 'I visited him at the school three times a week and my mum would drive past every day.'You could see him from the pathway outside the school, so I never needed to go in.

Yeah right. She dumped her aggressive unneutered boar off at an "infants" school, who sends stud boars to "infants" schools? and she walked past once in a while but never talked to any of the school personnel. She thought they'd take care of her problem for her, well they did, and now the results are horrible, if by horrible, you mean "delicious."

If she makes too big of a stink, maybe give her one of the piglets he might have sired. But if she tried to "loan" it back 3 months later when it gets too big to be cute any more, tell her to bugger off.

Now see, that's what I'm talking about. Ladies, you think your doing the upstanding thing by putting yourself through college and not stripping. But it's all a big lie. Strip, get tasered while half naked for men's enjoyment and just realize that nothing about your life is that serious. Or, you can take the "responsible" path and end up single with a stressful job and student loan debt at 40.
