News from the Natural World: A Farm Pig has come up with a sneaky way to avoid the chopping block and caused controversy.
A Farm Pig named Fritz was always destined for the chopping block. Ever since he had been a little piglet he knew that was to be his fate. He had heard the screams from the big shed. In addition, he had seen the terror in the other pig’s eyes when they were taken away. He had smelt the waft of his comrades on the air when Farmer Mildred had her bacon butties in the morning. Fritz knew that he was meant to be killed and eaten and that that was his destiny.
But then one day Fritz had an idea. He had always seen that the Dogs on the farm were treated much better. They didn’t get killed and eaten. Furthermore, they were allowed in the bedroom and had special treats. They had their pictures on the wall and certainly didn’t end up in sandwiches. Fritz the Farm Pig finally knew the answer to all his problems, all he had to do was become a Dog. But how the hell would he do that? He couldn’t just change completely and alter his biological makeup, could he?
Farm Pig Self-Identifies as Dog
Fritz knew that the human world must hold the correct inspiration for him. He listened to the radio and watched TV day in and day out. He finally saw what he had been looking for. Humans were beginning to change their sex. They were transforming from biological men to women and vice versa. Fritz thought, why couldn’t this apply to me? Why couldn’t I change species?
