Why do we eat pigs?

Because they are taste good and were capable of being domesticated and raised on large scales.

They're delicious.

>>7054771

But they're so cute though.

How could humans have even gotten the idea to kill one for nourishment instead of taking the species as pets like we did dogs?
>>
I know eating human flesh can give you all kinds of diseases and pig flesh is the closest you can get to human flesh. Wonder if pig meats fucks your shit up like human meat at all.

>>7054787
The same way we learned to eat every other animal we eat. Someone killed it and cooked it and found out that it was delicious.
>>
>>7054799

he was a vegfag for 3 years, then died.

PETA made him their martyr for "muh no meat pls deh animals maymay" purposes.

Eating similar animals does add to the the risk of being infected by cross-species parasites. Trichinosis is a good example with eating pigs. Usually with fish, since they're cold blooded, many parasites that live in them don't live in people, so bacteria or viruses are a bigger concern. Round worms from fish do occasionally infect people. Though for any meat/fish, normal cooking kills the parasites.
>>
>>7054822

He made gainz by eating meat, converted to vegetarianism then died 3 years later.

After which, PETA made statements about his death being meat related, if he "had only stopped in time the damages meat caused could have been reversed", types of statements.

ANTIFA, PETA, these groups cause internal damage to make martyrs of people, to further push their shitty agendas.

Because no animal is as calorie efficient as pigs, who can eat almost anything and bulk at rapid rates. They also have huge litters from a single pregnancy.

Couple that with the fact you can eat every part of the pig except the squeal.

This.

Lard was a particularly useful substance prior to the chemistry boom of the 20th century, it had a myriad of uses from culinary to industrial.

And they do reproduce at an astonishing rate.

Hernando de Soto brought 13 pigs with him to Florida, at the time of his death three years later there were over 700 in his camp. That's not counting the ones that had been slaughtered, escaped or traded to the natives.

Because you tard there is a huge difference between the way dogs and pigs act. A pig will squeal and wine every second it does not get its way, and constantly honk. Be in a house with a pig for more than a week and you'd easily want to take it out back. That's why they're easy to kill. Christ, you wonder why "you're a pig" is considered an insult

There are packs of wild hogs in Texas so vast the farmers protecting their crops need automatic weaponry to thin out the herd and save their livelihood.

I thought staying on an authentic American cattle ranch would be a good holiday (Irishfag here)...never fucking again. Fuck that shit into the river and drown it. I'll stick to National monuments and theme parks next time I'm across the pond.

There were easily 350 of them stampeding around the ranch we stayed at. Pic related, animals that big but with giant tusks protruding from their mouths.
>>
>>7055849
Why don't they just say fuck the cattle ranching, free pigs?

Pretty sure you're allowed to sell wild game in murriKKKa

Bacon tastes goood. Pork chops taste goood.

Is it me or pork can smell vile sometimes? It's not that strong of a scent, but I notice it whenever eating pork roast and it just ruins it for me. I rarely eat pork because of this, except for bacon occasionally.
>>
>>7055849
Them's ain't hogs, son, but boars.

>>7055853
Not quite the same kind of meat, unfortunately.
>>
>>7055853
Cattle are far more lucrative and feral hogs are fucking mean as hell and will fucking destroy the land, eating every plant they come across, down to and often including the roots.
>>
>>7055878

Boars, hogs ans pigs are pretty much the same animal.
>>
>>7054787
becuase wed leave our scaps out and wolfes would eat them then the wolfes learned that by following humans they could be feed with out having to go out an hunt for this reason the wolfs protected the humans from danger even other less domesticated wolfs we began an interspecies bond becuase of this and the friendlier the wolf was to a human the higher chsnce it had for survival then the friendliest got breed with the friendliest so much that they evolved into dogs and eventually obminations like the pug

pigs didnt protect us from shit so we ate them and breed them to be ate simple stuff really
>>
>>7055239
>A pig will squeal and wine every second it does not get its way, and constantly honk

And this is different from dogs and their incessant fucking barking how?
>>
>>7054787
I take it you've never slaughtered or seen a pig slaughtered before. It's disturbing the first time, then it's mechanical. The worst part is when you slaughter a couple in a row, after the first one the rest figure out what's happening and that squeal is the most precise expression of terror that you will ever here.

I had to put down one of my folks dogs, but that was with a gun, so it was easy. I couldn't imagine have to slit a dogs throat, that'd suck.
>>
>>7054763
They're delicious, breed fast for a large mammal, can destroy ecosystems if left unchecked, are delicious and we domesticated them.

Plus eating herbivores/omnivores is often preferential to eating carnivores
>>
>>7055495
They were actually my mom's cousins and uncles. We went to go visit them in the rural hills of Mexico, before everything went to shit. It was nice...
>>
I don't know. I love bacon to fucking death, but I really don't incorporate pork into my meals. Even with meals that call for pork, I will usually substitute beef or chicken. I'm not religious or anything like that, I just never got into pork that much.

I did pick up a 9lb pork picnic last week when it was on sale for $5. Will probably slow cook it this weekend. Mitebgud
>>
>>7054787
Size, really. Also they stop being cute pretty quickly.
>>
>>7054787
Every animal looks super cute when they are a newborn babby.
Have you ever been around pigs IRL? They are assholes.They are either afraid of you or fighting you, never friendly.
Mother pigs will lay down and if a kid is underneath, it can scream away, and she has no concern that it is being crushed.
That is the reason for these pig crates that PETA-type idiots consider "cruel" confinement.
They literally have no idea why the crates came about in the first place.
>>
>>7054787
Predators are smarter animals than plant eaters, that is why we have cats and dogs for pets, not pigs and cows.
We are also meat eaters which gives us more in common. Dogs+humans were the ultimate hunting partners. We had the brains and weapons and they had the sense of smell and speed.
>>
>>7055155
Go away /b/
>>
>>7054763
Because hunters spread the word that wild boars tasted nice and it was desirable to hunt wild boar not only for their meat but also their bones and tusks to make tools and weapons.
>>
>>7054787
>How could humans have even gotten the idea to kill one for nourishment instead of taking the species as pets

Modern pigs don't look like ancient pigs at all.

We bred modern pigs to look like your picture.

It took a long time before the wild pigs we domesticated became pink, almost hairless pigs.

Also, wild pigs were nuisances. Dangerous and ate your fucking crops and shit everywhere.

Humans couldn't tolerate them so we hunted and ate them.

Deal with it.
>>
>>7054763
That cute little piggie would be so so tasty with nice crunchy skin and soft soft tender meat...
>>
Pork Scratchings are deep-friend pig fetuses
>>
>>7055853

The meat of wild pigs is shit compared to domestic pigs.

It is done though, but the captured wild hogs have to be given a full body flush with grain and whatnot just in case.

That's like saying a wolf and a dog are the same because they're the same species.

Actually, aren't pigs and boars in different species now, or are they still a subspecies?
>>
>>7058632

Wolves and dogs are the same.

One is domesticated, one isn't.

I have a hybrid as a pet. There is no breeding that wild instinct out. Literally the only reason I joined this conversation. If a wolf and Malamute can breed, then they're both dogs.

Michigan's DNR is so freaked out by feral pigs / wild boars, that you can legally hunt them all year round, day or night, with any kinda hunting license or just a CPL.

Personally, still haven't seen a singe one or even signs of any piggies running around but I'd rather bag me a wild pig then a deer.

Rules for Shooting Feral Swine

Is it legal to take feral swine?
Yes, if you are legally hunting game during an open season (of any type) and see a feral swine you may pursue that animal if you wish, following all the regulations of the open season which you are hunting. (Please note: There is an open season of some species 365 days of the year.) For open seasons and regulations, please view the most current Michigan Hunting and Trapping Digest.

When can I legally shoot a feral swine?
Any time during regular hunting hours and when actively night-hunting raccoon, opossum, fox and coyote. (Please be sure to follow all day and night hunting regulations for the season in which you are hunting game. Refer to the current Michigan Hunting and Trapping Digest for details.)

What type of hunting license do I need to pursue feral swine?
Any type of valid hunting license or a concealed pistol permit is needed on public property. Possession of either of these allows the holder to be in legal possession of the firearm associated with the license or permit on public land.
