Wroezelaar, a toy for pigs
Pigs are smart creatures. And mean. Some speculate that pigs in captivity can develop a poor disposition because they're bored, making Sharon Geschiere's "Wroezelaar," a play toy for swine, an essential accessory for an emotionally healthy abattoir environment.
Having been chased down by one-too-many 1,000-pound free-range sows on my uncle's farm, I'm not entirely convinced that pigs aren't genetically predisposed to orneriness. But since I also believe that the best thing we can do for livestock before slaughtering and eating their bodies is to give them a happy, healthy existence, I'm can't help but support piggy entertainment. Might I also suggest weekly showings of Babe
and Charlotte's Web
There's no denying that pig on the left looks super
stoked. May he smile all the way to my plate.
