A domestic pig.

A pig is an animal of the genus sus.  Pigs are intelligent omnivores that are a very common source of food for Humans.


Today's pigs on farms are descended from wild boars, who are still frequently hunted today.


Wilbur, the protaginist of E.B. White's Charlotte's Web is a pig.

In George Orwell's Animal Farm, pigs are intelligent Communists who begin the book sympathetic to liberal values like equality, but become cruel, fascist dictators in an allegory for Stalinist Russia.

Pigs are a source of food.  They become food by being murdered and butchered.  Then they are made into hot dogs, pepperoni, bacon, ham, pork, and your favorite, prosciutto.

Some type of a pig is a part of traditional French, Italian, American, and Chinese diets: to name a few.

Pigs and Factory FarmingEdit

Just like any other animal whose remains can be purchased at discounted prices at your local WalMart, pigs have become innocent victims of factory farming.  The first time such violations were exposed was in Upton Sinclair's The Jungle.

The major pig processing company in the United States today is Smithfield Foods.  Smithfield has violated animal rights multiple times.   Sows are stuffed into tiny cages and forced to give birth with very little space, while  other pigs are literally stacked on top of each other.  The amount of waste produced is extremely high.  The waste has been comparred to nuclear waste in poison level. [1]  It pollutes rivers, lakes, and other natural resources essential to human well being.

This waste causes bacteria.  However, the high amount of antibiotics used at Smithfield makes bacteria resistant to antibiotics, thus making it easier for bacteria to kill humans.

To make things much worse A video relased by The Young Turks on November 12 2015 depicts Workers abusing the Pigs. We will not go into the horrifying details but one worker was slepping out the Job.[2]
