  •  Clearly, you haven't met a nice pig. (3+ / 0-)

    A friend has a big old sow running around her place, free ranging, she keeps herself clean, hangs out with the bigger dogs (doesn't like the little yappy one), greets visitors and is generally a wonderful pet.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

    •  I know pigs can be nice (0+ / 0-)

      In fact, I think they are generally so evil because of the conditions we keep them in -- in pig styes -- and the way we treat them. It's almost like we treat them badly to make them mean which justifies eating them.

      On the other hand, once I was in a game park in Swaziland, in southern Africa, and although most big animals were screened out of the base camp, wild bush pigs and wart hogs sometimes invaded. One night a bunch of those mean sonsufbiches chased me up a fence pole.

      I think even domestic pigs are more naturally mean than domestic dogs, cats or horses.
