    Wow! That’s interesting and gross all at once. Does it ever bother you to eat something when it’s face is right there, staring back at you? I could never do it. Eek!

  3. It was a little strange killing a g pig but, as they do look pretty cute and i know them as pets. but for the people i was with it was a normal butchering process so you get on with the job.
