Want to catch wild pigs?
- Put food down for them to attract them,
- Keep doing it to keep ’em coming, so they stop foraging for themselves and become dependent on you for their food supply,
- Gradually build a pen around the pigs, so that they don’t notice,
- Close the gate.
Now you’ve got yourself some grateful pigs – and a steady supply of pork.
