These were becoming quite popular in Michigan. Very tasty breed. Then the corporate pig lobbyists got them reclassified as "feral hogs." Doesn't matter if the are secured in an enclosure or not. The DNR (Department of Natural Resources) then went around to ensure that all the farmers that kept them had them slaughtered. If they were any found alive, they were shot by the officers. Really ...Sotty63 07/16/2013
While trying (unsuccessfully) to come up with an amusing scientific-sounding name for a pig-sheep, I discovered there is a chimera produced by combining the embryos of a goat and a sheep. It's called a geep.BradVPan 07/16/2013

Through an intense journey of self discovery, Leon journeys to the north of England to meet his biological father, a pig ...Sparkelle227 07/16/2013

I can attest to the fact that they taste delicious. My butcher has them. He buys them from some outdoor biofarm where they basicly live in a huge forrest and feed of oaknuts. They mature much slower than other commercially bred pigs. Their meat is perfectly marbled and has a slightly higher fat content. Basicly its the equivalent of pig what kobe beef is for cows.Blalubb 07/17/2013
