Wild pig welfare

Want to catch wild pigs?

  1. Put food down for them to attract them,
  2. Keep doing it to keep ’em coming, so they stop foraging for themselves and become dependent on you for their food supply,
  3. Gradually build a pen around the pigs, so that they don’t notice,
  4. Close the gate.

Now you’ve got yourself some grateful pigs – and a steady supply of pork.

Think about that next time you’re tempted to accept the government’s shilling, in any guise.

Frankly, I’d rather clean toilets or live in penury than accept a bean from the government.
