Pigs help people laugh at absurdity and hypocrisy. There is denial of our emotional truth going on. We fear we are going to be walked over, that people will not be looking out for us or reciprocating loyalty. With cows, it is different, they look at us with trusting eyes, never assuming that those who care for the intend to kill them or separate them from their young. But pigs keep their heads down, they have the measure of us. Avoid eye contact, screech in complaint with the uncertainty of every touch. Someone said to me yesterday 'but God they're a nightmare on the lorry' Well of course they're a nightmare on the lorry. That is what is called a last ditch attempt to survive, not go to the abattoir. Obvious response I'd have said.
