The Killing of Poor Little Piggies
May 19, 2017 8:18pm CST
In the isolated places in Cordillera Philippines, the local tribes have distinct way of killing their animals. You might be surprised how they kill the wild pigs. The barbaric way is to hit the head of the pig until it dies and burn to remove the pig skin’s hair. Once it was done, they will normally butchered the pig. Next, cut pig’s meat into big slices. And then, they will clean and boil it with salt. If the meat is soft, then the perfect simple dish served to the local tribes. The local tribes are considered the hunters of pigs in the untouched mountains in their respective territories. They do prefer to eat wild pigs because it is tastier. Since wild pigs eat pure grasses in the forest. "Have you tried to kill a pig?" "Have you seen how to kill a pig?" Image Credit: Shavkat

When I was younger, my dad would sometimes buy a piglet. He would raise it until it was a good sized hog, then have it butchered. I never witnessed the killing, but would suspect its throat was sliced instead of being beaten over the head. Hog hunters around here hunt with packs of dogs that might tear the pig apart if the pack reaches the hog before the hunter arrives to shoot it.

Pig taste great, pork and all, but like any meat. you see how they kill it, Might make many people change their mind on eating ,meat. I have seen it and can live with myself. Do like the ones who treat the animals with respect before they kill them and when they kill them.
I use to go with the locals down south during the 80s to hunt wild boars using spear traps and shotguns. i remember it had ravaged a "gabi" or taro plantation near a body of water and dug the roots of the root crop. These animals are very dangerous especially when trapped or cornered. I don't do it anymore or will ever, they are endangered now and need to be conserved, their should be a protected area where only the indigenous tribesmen would be allowed to hunt because it's part of their tradition.
@LadyDuck If it were only so simple. Killing for the pure sake of hunting is not acceptable. Whislt people starve and live on the bread line they will always do whatever is necessary. Even dogs are slaughtered and eaten in the Philippines. Nothing however is allowed to go to waste. People we classify as Savage or barbaric live in and respect nature as they know it provides for them.

Question? How do you respectfully kill a animal? i mean isn't any form of killing it cruel? i understand your meaning though some ways are more cruel.... but i am sure these people atleast eat the meat, to me cruel killing is people who kill things just for sport and they do not even eat what they killed.
when my sister had a pig pen in our backyard, and a piglt is butchered, i know how they kill a domesticated pig: they tie the legs, and expose the neck, then slice the carotid artery until blood flows (and collected through a basin with vinegar). the shrill cries are loud, until it goes fainter.
