“We have shown that pigs share a number of cognitive capacities with other highly intelligent species such as dogs, chimpanzees, elephants, dolphins, and even humans,” neuroscientist Lori Marino of Emory University and The Nonhuman Rights Project said in a press release. “There is good scientific evidence to suggest we need to rethink our overall relationship to them.”
Just How Smart Are Pigs?
According to Psychology Today, pigs can solve puzzles, develop friendships, and have a perception of time.
Their ability to solve problems, like the pig I.Q. test on The Joy of Pigs, is well-documented, and they are considered by animal experts to be more trainable than dogs or cats.
So, of our heroic pig in the video, it is heartbreaking to know that humans have become to desensitized to their suffering, pain and family bonds, that we see them as nothing more than a meal.
