The Bacon of the Sea

(Video Link)

Big Majors Spot, a tiny island in the Bahamas, is inhabited by a herd of feral pigs. The food supply on the island is limited, so the little porkers will gladly swim out to boaters off the shore to beg for scraps.


They are so beautiful and smart - pity people treat them like property, like objects, castrate them without anesthetics, cut their tails and teeth also without anesthetics, keep them in crates so small they can't move, then transport them for hundreds of miles to a slaughterhouse where a low skilled worker needs to kill as many of them as he can in a minute, often resulting in very slow deaths. Not to mention that these same workers, so desensitized by their jobs, often will torture them just for fun - there are many reports of such things, including one from Ozzy Osborn who used to work in a slaughterhouse.

All for what? Bacon, ham, and other completely dispensable items which give a little bit of pleasure to you yet cause a hell lot of suffering to them.

So I'm glad to see these guys roaming free, swimming in nice waters and having a good time. I just wish they all had that opportunity to be free.

And here we have the salt-water pig,
substantially different from the well-
known freshwater porcine. Note the
webbed, split hooves and chromata
phore stripes upon the flanks.
Tourists are advised to visit at
dusk to truly appreciate the noc
turnal display these pigs make to
signal each other.....
They are tasty. We eat them. That is
