30,000 Pigs Lost?

The Queensland, Australia newspaper The Morning Bulletin covered stories from the recent floods. One livestock farmer was particularly devastated.
MORE than 30,000 pigs have been floating down the Dawson River since last weekend, with a piggery at Baralaba paralysed by flooding which has killed most of its bred live-stock.

Baralaba Butchers' Sid Everingham owns and runs the piggery near Baralaba.

Mr Everingham said: "We've lost probably about 30,000 pigs in the floods, we tried to get as many weaners and suckers out by boat, but we could only save about 70 weaners, and the suckers didn't survive long, because they needed that mother's milk, and all the sows have been washed away.

But later the story was clarified.
What Baralaba piggery-owner Sid Everingham actually said was "30 sows and pigs", not "30,000 pigs"

I'm surprised they spelled weaners right.

And, yes, the interesting part was the exaggerated number due to a pun-like mistake, not the unfortunate death of 30 sows.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
