goats, pigs

Although it is no longer March of Pigs, I cannot help but share what I find to be an inspirational story about feral pigs in Canada. Originally imported from Europe in the late 1980s for meat, these noble creatures have truly made the great north their own. They mate with domestic pigs, live off the land and build their own above-ground structures known as “pigloos.” They have a special combination of wild and domesticated traits that have helped them become 600 pound super pigs. Amazing.
