Rescued piglets served up as sausages to firefighters

A litter of piglets whose bacon was saved from a barn fire has been served up as dinner to the firefighters who rescued them.

The 18 piglets and two sows survived the fire in Wiltshire in February, which saw 60 tonnes of hay catch fire.

In a controversial move, farm manager Rachel Rivers thanked the Pewsey fire team by giving them sausages.

The firefighters initially said the bangers were "fantastic" but following complaints have since said sorry.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) said the piglets were "no better off" for escaping the fire.

"We'll be sending Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service packs of vegan sausages so that they can see how easy it is to truly be heroes for pigs - by sparing them all suffering," said spokesman Mimi Bekhechi.

A traveller was driving through Arkansas when he lost his way and got off the main highway.

As he drove by, he saw rows and rows of pigsties and pigpens and pigs running in fields and pigs wallowing in mud. Suddenly, his eye caught something really strange. He did a double take, muttered to himself and then looked a third time. He wondered if he had seen correctly - it looked like a pig with a wooden leg!

He found the lane to the farm and drove up into the farmyard, where he was met by the farmer. "Excuse me," the traveller said. "I was just driving by and looking at all your pigs, and I noticed something that I just had to stop and ask about. Tell me, did I see right? Is there really a pig out there with a wooden leg?"

The farmer smiled. "Oh, that would be old Caesar you saw. He's the finest pig a man could ever hope to have - and smart! Well, let me tell you a little about that pig. You see that barge down there on the river? That's a mining dredge, taking out platinum ore. Old Caesar sniffed out the vein and showed us how to set it up. Now that dredge brings me in about $120,000 every year.

"There's another thing, too, a little more personal. One night a couple of years ago I got to drinking and I guess I had more than I should have. I passed out drunk, fell down and knocked over a lamp. That started a fire in the house and old Caesar smelled the smoke. He came in the back door, got the wife and kid out, roused me up and got me out.

There is no question about it - that night old Caesar saved all our lives and you know that is not the sort of thing a man is going to forget too easily."

"Why," the traveler said, "this is all amazing! I have never heard of a pig like this before! This is fantastic! But tell me, how did he get that wooden leg? Was he in a wreck or something?"

The farmer laughed and said, "Well, naturally, when you have a pig that smart, you don't want to eat him all at one time!"

Some people are too stupid to realize what pigs are for.

They're domesticated animals bred to be tasty and docile, what did PETA think was going to happen to them? Being a radical vegan is only possible due to the relative wealth and stability of our society. How many days without food would it take for these people to eat one of those sausages?

No animal deserves a death by fire. Some animals are food. Both can be true

Firefighters saved the pig farmers property.  Pig farmer thanks firefighters by disposing of his property as he saw fit, converting his property to sausage and donating to the firefighters.

absolutely nothing wrong with that, unless you abhor private ownership, and personal property that is. WTF would the firefighters have to apologize for?

What, as if PETA wouldn't have killed the pigs if they had control over them?
