Heroic Pig Risks Life To Save Friend From Slaughter (Video)

by | December 1, 2018

A heroic pig risked life to save their friend about to be slaughtered, as reported on twitter, by John Oberg. 

The pig, in an undisclosed location, hearing the frantic screams of their friend, who was being pinned to a stool outdoors as two men prepared to slaughter her; charged them to save their friend,  and trying to bite another as they jumped back.

Heroic Pig Isn’t Alone

According to Seeker, pigs are more intelligent that dogs, an animal we keep as a companion, and who the world was up in arms about being a food source in the Yuling Dog Festival, according to a research paper they reported on.

The report, which is trying to show humans that animals that which are normally considered as a food source are intelligent sentient beings, much like the heroic pig in the video. 


“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.

    Pigs are so smart, so loving, and treated terribly. How sad. Best to go vegetarian/vegan for health. We are not meant to eat meat. We are animals. they are animals, we have the same feelings, fears and love.

    No direct condemnation of the evil of the two men committing this atrocity, as usual. As usual, the insane Left wing deny reality at every turn, constantly blurring the faces of animal abusers when footage is released of them committing crimes against innocent creatures. The public have a right to know who is doing these things. Why do you constantly protect animal abusers by hiding their identities?
