Stud Duties

posted by on September 25 at 10:53 AM

A pony-size pig who held an Australian woman hostage for 10 days inside her home will be removed on Wednesday to a piggery, where his bacon will be saved by a stint on stud duties, rangers said.

The 176 pound pig, nicknamed Bruce, kept self-confessed animal lover Caroline Hayes, 63, in her farmhouse near Uki, in northern New South Wales State, with aggressive demands to be fed, even headbutting her bedroom door at night.

“I picked up a broom and poked him out with it and he snapped it in half with his mouth,” Hayes told Australian media.

In related Facebook news, I just became the 32,729th fan of bacon.

A 176 pound pony sized pig? That sounds like a thin pig

Shetland's weigh in at 400-600lbs. That 150lb pig was closer in size to a somewhat svelte Saint Bernard, but I'm guessing the type of "hostage" she was being held was something closer to the emotional variety than anything out of Cujo.

Feed the poor thing. What do you expect from a pig? Just look at Wall Street. Those pigs have an entire nation held hostage.

She should have tried putting lipstick on it. Clearly that was just Sarah Palin's evil spirit roaming abroad after sundown.
