Set suggested a Film and Media board. Good idea and the new board can go in the Non Political section.

I have set up a poll for names. Please vote and/or comment on the new thread in Improvements.

Had a friend who goes pig shooting on occasion .. many years ago they shot a sow not realizing it had a piglet .... It can happen when you shoot at night using spotlights ...

anyway, what to do with the piglet? He took it home, put it in his grandfathers old chicken coop (chickens moved out years prior) and raised it for the next 3 or 4 months in a suburban back yard. That xmas they had it butchered then put it on a spit ... Same friend is a chef .... swears it's the best pork he ever had

My neighbours.. them of the disputes, recently had a Mobile butcher come in and kill their Boar and 8 piglets. I was wondering why my dog was upset, one morning, and trying to get her inside, I saw the Truck. And heard the killshots.

As a result I finally got him to give me his number, and he mine, so he could advise of similar.
In my local council area you can have piglets on property of more than 2, as long as they are only up to 3 mths old. After that they have to be removed. IE.. BUTCHERED.

I still think it should be MUSIC, not song.

Song is too exclusive. What about Miles Davis.. or Chopin. Chopin didn't write SONGS FFS.

Anyway, listen or not ..doesn't matter.

True. It was a bit confronting to say the least. He said, we have kept the Sow.. not sure if she is pregnant.. so maybe another litter to kill.

Not what I would choose to do on 2.5 acres.

Pretty sad isn't it.? I think they have learned , not such a good idea.

mobile butcher to kill the boar? I'm pretty sure you have to send the animal to an abottior to be killed. Not allowed to DIY anymore.

Back in my day...that is correct. No kill if you are inside an 'abattoir' area. Reminds me of another case, but, it seems the days of me telling those tales are over, given the antics of the doxxer.

YES he said the boar and 8 piglets. They were getting too old to keep.
umm I've seen ads in the local paper ( yes we actually still have one here. for now ) for Mobile Butchers.

And yeah they left the animals to hang for 3 days in the attached refrigerated trailer , on site, before they came back, and finished chopping them up. My dog could smell it, and was again really on edge.

There are a few Mobil Butchers in our area John....They usually even do sausages and pickle roasts like silver-side when they do...
Guy with a Mini Excavator is usually there at the end to bury the carcass as well.
